Southern Baptist Disaster Relief leaders are sending a wave of college students who will respond to the needs of Hurricane Sandy survivors.  New York homeowners still need assistance as they try to rebuild their lives and clean up after the storm.

More than 300 students have registered to serve in New York over spring break. The collegiate effort will cycle new crews into the storm ravaged area each week until April 15.  Students will primarily work mud-out and cleanup jobs on Staten Island.
