    My friends and I wouldlike to learn about how we can assist after Hurricane Sandy. A few of us were fortunate to have assisted in MS after Katrina. A suggestion would be to contact the Diocese of Biloxi, MS to have them share their ideas.

    Look forward to hearing back.

    I am a civil engineer and helped with the clean-up/rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. The company I worked for arranged for 30 superintendents and workers to help around 10 households rebuild. I am Catholic living in the Diocese of Cheyenne Wyoming. I would like to come to give real help in the clean-up and rebuilding effort especially in the hard-hit areas of Staten Island and areas in NJ.

    I look forward to hearing any way I might be of help. Many prayers go out to those that are struggling! Time is of this essence with winter coming….

    God bless!
