YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The scenic Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park took a beating last month at the hands of Hurricane Sandy, and Yorktown is asking for help in cleaning up debris and more than 100 downed trees.
The Friends of FDR group has scheduled a clean-up day from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and invites volunteers to help rake debris and move branches. Volunteers should dress in layers of work clothes and bring work gloves. Tools will be provided, but volunteers should bring a rake if possible.
Following Sandy, the park has served as the main Westchester staging area for Con Edison. The pool parking lot also was turned into a temporary housing site for 500 people assisting with relief efforts in the surrounding areas.
