WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) — Volunteers are pitching in to help clean up areas of Rhode Island hit hard by Superstorm Sandy.
The organization Serve Rhode Island says more than 70 people have signed up to help move debris and clean the shores of a salt pond Saturday in Misquamicut (mis-KWA'-mih-kut). The beach community in Westerly saw surging waters rip through homes and businesses and fill area roadways with several feet of sand.
The group says more than 700 volunteers from all over the state and New England have given their time to help clean up after last month’s storm.
Those who wish to volunteer or give money may do so at Serve Rhode Island’s website, www.serverhodeisland.org .
