We’re usually focused on helping people remotely by connecting them to service professionals. Today we helped people in person by giving our local seniors a hand in cleaning up from the storm.
Potomac, MD (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Members of the Seva Call team took Tuesday afternoon off from work to help the residents of Brooke Grove Retirement Village in Sandy Spring, Md. clean up their yards from “Stormageddeon,” which swept through the area over the weekend of June 29. The team worked from noon to 3 p.m. at Brooke Grove Retirement Village to clean up debris from the storm and generally restore order in the yards of senior citizens.
“Our mission is to help people,” says Seva Call President Manpreet Singh, whose office and home has been without power ever since Friday’s storm. “We’re usually focused on helping people remotely by connecting them to service professionals. Today we helped people in person by giving our local seniors a hand in cleaning up from the storm.”
The storm knocked out power in more than 1 million homes in the D.C. area, according to experts. Among these were the homes of the Seva Call co-founders. Many of the power outages were a result of damage to power lines caused by high winds and debris. Much of the damage from the storm is still visible around the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area.
