The Clintons joined the ongoing Sandy recovery in a “Day of Action” in the Rockaways.
Chelsea Clinton and hundreds of volunteers visited Brookville Park, Rockaway Park, P.S. 197 and homes in Far Rockaway on Saturday to revitalize the damaged communities. This is the fifth Day of Action, which has brought in volunteers from all over the country to give back to their own communities.
Clinton also participated in the St. Bernard Project to break ground on the future site of the first “Resilient House.”
The former first daughter joined the home’s future owners, the Lyons family, at the event.
The Resilient House will be designed by Sustainable TO Architecture + Building and is modeled to be energy efficient, cost effective and able to withstand future disasters.
