On Thursday, January 9th, the New York Disaster Interfaith Services (NYDIS) held their January Board of Directors meeting. During the meeting, three New York area families received new wheelchair accessible vans to replace vehicles lost during the devastation of 2012’s Super Storm Sandy. All three vans were funded through a combination of federal funding and private, charitable donations made to NYDIS.

In the video below, Peter B. Gudaitis of NYDIS announces the donations that were being made that evening.
