*Construct Relief is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to lead the reconstruction efforts of Staten Island homes affected by Hurricane Sandy. The organization was initiated immediately after the storm to provide construction finance, management and fundraising efforts for the Staten Island, NY community. It will also serve as a hub where New York City building and design companies and professionals can register to volunteer their services or materials.
The initial board of directors that will be responsible for the drafting and execution of the foundation’s charter and bylaws are founding members of Think Design Architecture and All Renovation Construction LLC.
“With the winter weather already upon us, it was extremely important for the Construct Relief team to get our foundation started so we can help as many people as possible”, stated All Renovation Construction partner and Staten Island resident, Pietro Calabretta. “We have worked with the Think Design Architecture team on many New York City construction projects so it was imperative that we now use our expertise and working relationship to give back to our community” further states Calabretta.
As part of the foundation’s mission of helping Staten Island families rebuild their homes, Construct Relief held a Fundraiser event on December 6, 2012 at Staten Island’s Vanderbilt at South Beach Venue. More than 300 guests including New York City Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis and New York City Council Member Dominic M. Recchia attended Construct Relief’s Staten Island fundraiser. The event, which featured a $10,000.00 gift card(s) donation by Home Depot, raised $50,000.00 towards the rebuilding efforts for Staten Island homes affected by Hurricane Sandy. Up- to-date information will be available via Construct Relief’s social media outlets including Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin
Families who want to be considered for the no cost construction projects will need to submit a Home Build application. Building and Design companies or construction industry professionals interested in contributing materials or volunteering can submit an Industry Donation application.
