Hoboken, NJ was one of the hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy and people are doing what they can to help those in need.
Like, for example, Lucy Walkowiak, an 11-year-old girl who has started a pop-up Internet café and charging station to help dozens of neighbors get a much-needed gadget charge and Internet connection to the outside world.
Walkowiak simply asks for a small monetary donation to the Red Cross for the use of the power and people are also donating coffee to the impromptu baristas working the portable tables
Her father, Steve Walkowiak, told The Philly Post that he gives full credit for the idea to his daughter.
“Lucy does a lot of community service through her school,” he said. “This is on par with what she’s been learning.”
