Students from Newton, CT Volunteer with Met Council to Bring Holiday Cheer to Sandy Survivors

Photo Nov 24, 5 20 38 PMIn time for the holiday season, 15 students from Newtown Congregational Church volunteered at Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty’s Abraham Residence, home to 116 formerly homeless residents.   The students created new decorations for Chanukah and Christmas in order to bring holiday cheer to the residents. Hurricane Sandy destroyed the holiday decorations when the storm severely damaged the building’s basement and heating systems.  This Christmas will be the first anniversary of the residents returning home following three months of living in temporary housing because of the superstorm.
