Harrisburg Students Lend-A-Hand to Help Clean Up Hershey
Harrisburg Correspondent - Published: October 4, 2011
Several Harrisburg Students participated in flood clean up effort run by the Lend-A-Hand program on Friday, September 30th. The clean up took place in Hershey from 9 a.m. until late in the afternoon. The group from Widener assisted in removing paneling and ceiling tiles from a flooded house that dated back to the 1700’s. Students were provided with rubber boots, masks and gloves.

Third year student Matthew Dorry said, “It was a great experience to work with members of the community struggling to recover from the recent flooding. The event went very well. We tore down the basement interior quickly so the homeowner can obtain contractors to start rebuilding. Lend-A-Hand was a great opportunity for Widener students like us to assist others who need help.”

Groups are continuing to be arranged. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Nicole Radziewicz at nradz704@live.kutztown.edu or Kristin Potter at kmpotter60@gmail.com. Sign-Up sheets are also available on TWEN.
