New Jersey’s recovery from Hurricane Sandy, the second most destructive hurricane in U.S. history, is still ongoing. That’s why DHS employees, including four from NPPD, recently returned from a week of home restoration including sheetrock installation, taping and finishing of sheetrock joints and finish sanding in Sayreville, Roselle, and West Belmar, New Jersey.

Sponsored by DHS Emerging Leaders, an independent employee association, the trip was sanctioned under the DHS Volunteer Management Directive. This Directive [254-01] enables federal employees to take up to 40 hours of paid administrative leave each year to perform voluntary community service in areas related to the DHS mission.
Save the Date!  Next Year’s trip is scheduled for the week of May 15-21, 2016!  Contact Ken Sullivan (Kenneth.Sullivan@HQ.DHS.GOV) if you want to join us.
