EDISON — Middlesex County College received a Hurricane Sandy Relief Award at the Edison Chamber of Commerce Awards Gala on Tuesday, June 4. Shortly after the hurricane struck, the gym in the college’s Physical Education Center was turned into a medical facility to house vulnerable people from New Jersey who needed more care than a regular shelter could provide. In addition, more than 70 people from the college community volunteered to help. They included students from Democracy House, the service-learning program; students from the radiography program; students and faculty from the nursing program; as well as other students, faculty and alumni.
