Wayne, NJ, October 17, 2016 – Packanack Cooperative Nursery School, part of the Packanack Community Church, was under nearly 7 inches of water on July 31 after flash floods raced through Northern New Jersey. The center, that is a hub of the community, was devastated. Without flood insurance, they could only count on the kindness of volunteers to come back from the event. The volunteers showed up in droves, including the team of LA Design and Construction, DeCumber Landscapers, Armando Landscaping, amongst other local companies. When the church faced its darkest hour, the community came together and the Packanack Cooperative Nursery School reopened on September 12th, less than a month and a half later.
