The City Council is continuing to organize volunteers to help out in areas still reeling from Hurricane Sandy.
The council is providing buses every weekend from Lower Manhattan to affected neighborhoods.
Volunteers headed to Far Rockaway Sunday to team up with local groups and pitch in with relief efforts.
"We've been organizing trips every weekend basically since the storm happened, and we have email lists that we send emails to every weekend and we get volunteers," said Artyom Matusov, a City Council policy analyst.
"There is still a lot of people that need help, small businesses, households," said Joseph Huff, a volunteer. "I think it's important to continue to be in solidarity with fellow New Yorkers."
The City Council said it will continue to organize the volunteer buses as long as they are needed.
