The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy has touched many Northeastern students in a very personal way.
Joe Skrocki, for example, a senior architecture major from Ocean County, N.J., was stuck in Boston for the storm. “It got really tough to see everything happening on TV without being able to do anything,” he said.
Soon after the storm passed and it became evident just how much damage Sandy had inflicted on oceanfront communities in New York and New Jersey, Skrocki and a former classmate began collecting blankets, warm clothing and other supplies. On Nov. 11, they drove a donated van to a relief center in New Jersey and delivered the goods.
Skrocki and his friend have continued to collect donations — which can be dropped off at the Center for Community Service in 172 Curry Student Center or the LGBTQA Resource Center in 328 Curry — and deliver the supplies to those in need.
