YU undergrads help with flood relief

Over the Labor Day weekend, 12 undergraduates from Yeshiva University traveled to flood-ravaged Baton Rouge, La., to help with cleanup efforts in partnership with Nechama, a Jewish disaster-relief organization. For three days, the students ripped up wooden floorboards and moldy carpets, took rotting doors off hinges, and carried ruined countertops and dressers to the curb.
