’48 Hours’ Team Pitches In to Help Survivors of Sandy


By Chris Ariens Comment

Members of CBS News’ “48 Hours” team spent Saturday volunteering at Church of the Nazarene in Far Rockaway, Queens which suffered some of the worst damage from Hurricane Sandy nearly two weeks ago. The team worked with the Far Rockaway Relief Effort Fund and Northland to organize and distribute food, water, blankets, baby supplies, toys, paper products and other household objects to the surrounding community. More than 100 people turned out to receive aid in an area where most are still living without heat and power.
