Hurricane Sandy devastated areas of our local communities and many people are still struggling with the effects of the storm. With our full-site generator in full swing, Pennswood Village was able to weather the storm with very little disruption. To raise money to help those in need, Pennswood is offering a fun way to contribute to our neighbors while focusing on fitness!
