On June 7th the Action Center in Partnership with Save the Children and DYCD held the first ever community prep Rally. It was a wonderful, wonderful Saturday event. We exceeded all our goals. Nearly 600 residents were in attendance. We trained over 250 adults, and trained 160 non-action center kids, along with the 150 Action Center kids who’d been trained during after-school in disaster prep and entertained another 60 toddlers and teens.
Three Rockaway communities came together Ocean Bay, Far Rockaway and Hammels…which was an event within it’s self, proving that the community is truly transformed and united.
