WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Sixty-two Lycoming College students volunteered to assist area families impacted by last September's flooding on Saturday, Sept. 8, as part of the College's 9-11 Day of Service.
The group divided into two crews, which traveled to Clarkstown and to Lower Manor Road near Rt. 87. The Clarkstown group contributed to construction and property repair efforts, dry-walling, painting and performing outdoor maintenance. At Lower Manor Road, students removed debris and moldy drywall, took down a shed and back-filled a basement. Volunteers worked from 8 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., even staying productive through several rain showers.
The event was organized by Lycoming's Community Service Center, which hopes to continue to provide assistance to the areas throughout the year.
