Bloomfield Basketball Helps College Recover from Hurricane Sandy

 

With Hurricane Sandy and its devastating impact closing the Bloomfield College campus for six days, the institution's men's basketball team lent a helping hand during the storm's aftermath, helping to clean debris on the campus grounds to aid the school in reopening in time for classes Monday, November 5.  The defending CACC champions took to the streets of campus, helping to clean fallen trees and garbage that had been left in the wake of the storm that ripped through the Garden State early last week.

"It wasn't even a question that we were going to help out our institution in any way we possibly could as a program once the storm hit," Bloomfield head coach Gerald Holmes said.  "Our players were very eager to help with the cleaning of our campus, because they take pride in going to school here and being a part of this community.  There are still so many people who are feeling this storm's impact, and we must continue to do our part to ensure these people receive the help they need.  Our campus is back in operation, but there are still so many areas without power and the basic necessities.  We will continue to do as much as we possibly can to help in the relief efforts, and we encourage everyone who can to do the same."

You can help do your part in the Hurricane Sandy relief effort by donating to the American Red Cross, or to Americares.  For more information on the storm and its aftermath, visit NJ.com.
