Occupy Sandy Staten Island is a volunteer-based group helping to rebuild and support the Staten Island community in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. We are actively interested in building relationships with other grassroots community organizations and sharing our network of legal aids, medics, translators, skilled tradespeople and volunteers with donation drop off/pick up spots, volunteer hubs, and community groups in need.
WHAT WE DO
The main Occupy Sandy Staten Island hub is at 551 Midland Ave in Midland Beach. It is a warehouse space shared with SI Unity, an Occupy Sandy-affiliated volunteer group. At 551 Midland Avenue, we intake needs from residents, dispatch demolition teams, cleaning crews, and special requests & deliveries. If you have a need for any Sandy-related labor, please call us to fill out a request for support: 347-201-0670.
There are a number of ways to volunteer in Staten Island, among them: demolition, mold remediation, warehouse organization, needs in-take, social media, Midland Community Garden activities, deliveries, etc. Please read the volunteering descriptions and suggestions here.
The OSSI/SI Unity hub is open from 10 am – 4 pm on weekends. We are open on the weekdays by appointment only. If you are planning on volunteering, please use Occupy Sandy’s volunteer signup form. We also welcome walk-in volunteers on the weekends.
