The day after Hurricane Sandy... and Give Back by GORI team

The 2 days after Hurricane Sandy hit NYC, a group of GORI team decided to go to Rockaway Beach, Queen, where the most help was needed, to help out the neighbors to supply the foods and aids. They had no access to transportation, electricity, gas...basically entire town was shut down. It was a tough trip to just get in and out the town but our help were appreciated. 

GORI came together to volunteer at StreetGames, an NYC Parks that took place in East Harlem.

Members of the community came by to get active while trying out classic street games like double-dutch and stickball, while we helped run the registration table and give out gifts to those who participated.

GORI partnered with NYCDOT to organize group volunteering activities for our members. 

Summer Streets is an annual celebration organized by Government of New York City. Nearly seven miles of NYC's streets are opened for people to play, run, walk and bike. Summer Streets provides space for healthy recreation and encourages New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation.
