Daily Point of Light # 4885 Oct 26, 2012

Selma Erey is a longtime volunteer and homeowner in the Rockaway Peninsula in New York City. In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated the Rockaways damaging homes, schools, and businesses, including Selma’s home. .Volunteers helped her clean out her house after Sandy. She became so inspired by the acts of service in her community as a result of Sandy that she decided to start and lead a Saturday “Rockaway Readers” club at the Far Rockaway library branch as a way to help students impacted by the storm build their reading skills so that they did not fall further behind in school.
