Gerritsen Sign 1

HEART 9/11 has been busy making progress in Gerritsen Beach sheet rocking and insulating the homes we gutted in November and December. Due to the support that HEART 9/11 has received from Enterprise Community Partners, Inc., Robin Hood Foundation and others we have been able to partner with NY Building Trade Unions to help boost our volunteer manpower. Specifically we have secured the participation of the NY Carpenters Union Apprentice School which includes two classes of trained apprentices; the work that they do in partnership with HEART 9/11 will satisfy their NY State credit requirements. As of February 18, 2013 HEART 9/11 began a fuller schedule of home rebuilds.

We continue to need volunteers….

WHEN: Starting Monday, February 18, 2013 – 8am and every Monday through Saturday

WHERE: 2676 Gerritsen Ave., Gerritsen Beach

WHO: Carpenters and Laborers and others to assit these skilled workers

HEART 9/11 will provide the sheetrock, insulation and lunch to all volunteers. 

Taking care of our own - sharing the hard learned lessons of our 9/11 experience.
