Volunteers spent Saturday helping clean up areas on Staten Island devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

All Hands Volunteers organized an event that took place in several homes in Midland Beach. Rep. Michael Grimm took part in that effort, along with two of his colleagues, Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) and Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC).

Also, more than 50 volunteers from the Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Emergency Management, CERT and Consolidated Edison gathered on Father Capdoanno Boulevard Saturday morning to take part in a clean up effort in Midland Beach.
