GangGreen lineman Oday Aboushi is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to rebuild Staten Island homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy today. The NFL has coordinated this day as the Super Bowl Build Event to coincide with the big game on Sunday.
Brooklyn native Aboushi will be joined by 13 Habitat volunteers from South Street Seaport to bring some much needed TLC to homes still devastated by Sandy.
“Tackling the affordable housing crisis in New York City is not easy. But collaborating with the NFL at this officially sanctioned Super Bowl event inspires us to press forward,” said Neil Hetherington, Chief Executive Officer of Habitat NYC. “New York Jets player Oday Aboushi and volunteers from the South Street Seaport serve as great examples of community building as we work to restore after Superstorm Sandy.”
And to sweeten the community service offer even more, volunteers will be rewarded with a tailgating party at South Street Seaport’s exclusive venue where they can catch Super Bowl XLVIII in comfort.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday, everyone XOXO
