In the wake of October’s massive storm, Circle K, a volunteer student disaster relief group, headed to Toms River, N.J., and Staten Island, N.Y., to offer storm victims assistance. Armed with hard hats, gloves and face masks, students, including Circle K president Victoria Dayton ’13 and Drew Disaster Relief Project head Nick Klein ’13, cleaned up homes damaged from the hurricane. “We just randomly walked into peoples’ homes and asked if they needed help,” says Dayton. On campus, the group held a variety of fundraisers for victims, including “Dance the Damage Away” and a penny jar race between residence halls. The efforts, say students, will continue. “I can do something,” says Dayton. “I have power. I have gas.”—Kathryn McMillan ’13

  2. This dust can enter the house with the air
    and cause illness and aggravate any dust related allergies.
    If you have been unfortunate enough to have had a mold issue after taking all
    the above steps it is important to find a reputable, reliable mold remediation company that will help you remove
    the mold problem and will guide you in the proper ways to fix and alleviate future mold reoccurrences.
    While most of these little spores are just cycled through the system
    and emitted when we breathe back out, some of them stay in our lungs.
