This week, 40 teens from Columbus, Ohio used their first week of summer vacation to travel to New York City with the Wexner Service Corps (WSC).  The teens repaired homes and buildings in neighborhoods still reeling from Hurricane Sandy, making a significant difference in the lives of people still impacted eight months later.  This week-long trip has been documented on their Facebook page and will continue to be updated until their trip concludes tomorrow.

The WSC is a pilot program of The Wexner Foundation which combines serious relief work and Jewish learning for Columbus Jewish teenagers.  Hours volunteered by WSC will be leveraged to support Kids Here and There, an initiative founded by Hannah Wexner, to improve nursing and medical care in Lusaka, Zambia.

The WSC is generously supported by Leslie & Abigail Wexner and The Wexner Foundation. Guided by the vision of Leslie & Abigail Wexner, The Wexner Foundation focuses on the development of Jewish professional and volunteer leaders in North America, and public leaders in Israel.
