Tuckahoe HS Students Perform Post Sandy Clean-Up

Students from the Habitat for Humanity Club have volunteered their time to help in the Village's clean-up efforts post Sandy.


The following announcement was submitted by Tammy Ehenfeld from the Tuckahoe Schools.

On Saturday Nov. 24, Tuckahoe High School students volunteered their time and energy to clean up Malcolm Wilson Park, in Tuckahoe.

The park was badly hit by last month's Hurricane Sandy, with many trees knocked down and large debris and branches covering the park's footpath, making it virtually impossible for pedestrians and their pets to walk through.

The 16 students, parent volunteers and Tuckahoe PTA Community Service Committee members helped to literally move trees and the many fallen branches into large piles for the town to remove.

This was the kickoff event for the school's Habitat For Humanity Club, a newly established school club, open to students grades 9-12 with an interest in improving the living conditions in local Westchester communities.  

Leading the students are Tuckahoe teacher advisor Joanne Ornstein and Tuckahoe PTA Committee Member, Mary Ushay.

Jim Sutton, Executive Director of the Bronx River Conservancy noted, “your efforts, enthusiasm and teamwork are remarkable qualities for all to see."

"In short, you went far beyond what was envisioned for the project; that was a lot of wood piled high to say the least! “
