In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, the ENC community, led by the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, stepped up to assist with relief efforts in partnership with Nazarene Disaster Response. During chapel on November 9, the college collected supplies and money offerings, and with the assistance of the Wollaston, Bethel, and South Weymouth Nazarene churches and a Mid-Atlantic District church, over $1800 was raised to purchase blankets, bleach, water, and non-perishable food to send to the NDR warehouse in Bronx, NY.

"I was greatly encouraged by the immediate response from students, churches, staff and faculty to do anything they could to help those affected by the storm," said Chaplain and Vice President for Spiritual Development Corey MacPherson. "With so many of us having family and friends from the New York/New Jersey area, this project was especially important to our community."
