ALBANY, N.Y. – Students, staff and faculty from the University at

The group will leave at 5:30 a.m. and travel by bus to the Occupy Sandy

They will spend the day working as teams on homes, repairing damage and
participating in the rebuilding effort.

another,' said Rev. Sandy Damhof, Protestant Campus Minister.
The trip is organized by Cornerstone Campus Ministry with the support
