Local Teachers Unite to Help Those Affected by Hurricane Sandy

Ben Fogletto, Press of Atlantic City

A group of teachers are still caring for those feeling the effects of the Superstorm, continuing to volunteer their time even two months later.

Atlantic City Teachers United was founded after the Sandy forced the closure of Atlantic City High School and the displacement of many area residents who had to evacuate.  About 40 ACTU volunteers continue working every weekend to field supplies and get them to students and their families still living in shelters by coordinating food and clothing drives at their schools, distributing goods, sometimes even making house calls.

 

The plight of Atlantic City Teachers United to help restore the shore even reached the Renaissance Hotel chain who donated more than 200 mattresses.

Preschool coach and group organizer Cinthya Llerena tells PressofAtlanticCity.com:

“I had volunteered with the Red Cross at the high school. I was looking after my students, and I could see what families were going through losing their homes. I just wanted to jump in and start helping.”

Friday, December 21, after school, ACTU is having a holiday party at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Atlantic City for more than 150 families that had all their belongings stolen by Hurricane Sandy.
