To Schoharie Area Long Term for its impressive work rebuilding the community since Hurricane Irene swept through the area almost a year and a half ago.
In recognition of its hard work, the organization hosted the Rev. Joseph Chu, associate program director of Lutheran Disaster Response; the Rev. David L. Myers, director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships; and Zachary Wolgemuth, associate director of Brethren Disaster Ministries, on Tuesday. The three visitors met with SALT staff and board members, and toured the area to learn more about the group’s accomplishments and goals.
We’ve been impressed with SALT’s work since its founding. We’re happy to see it getting the recognition it is due.
