Massey arrived in Long Island, N.Y., Nov. 12, as part of Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, a group he works with as a chaplain, the Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) said (LoneStar Leaguer Nov. 19.) Among Massey's duties is assessing damage to the homes of Hurricane Sandy victims.

Most homes on south Long Island were flooded with five to six feet of water. Volunteer Southern Baptists are helping tear away debris, wet sheetrock, insulation and furniture to prepare for contractors to make repairs, said the league.

"There is still much more work to be done," Massey told the league. "There is a back log of victims to help who have not been able to stay in their homes due to the mold smell. We could definitely use more volunteers."

With the support of his credit union board of directors, Massey is using two weeks of vacation to serve in Long Island. After long days of volunteer work, Massey returns in the evening to an area church, where he sleeps on a cot.

Massey visited Bethpage (N.Y.) FCU on Friday. The $5 billion credit union was just out of flood range, and held a food-and-clothing drive the day Massey visited.

Massey has volunteered in many different capacities, in the credit union movement, and in his church and community. He served on Credit Union Resources' board of directors, and is an advisory board member to the Fort Worth Chapter.  He also serves on TCUL's International Relationships Committee, and on the State Affairs Working Group of TCUL's Governmental Affairs Committee.

He is a chaplain for the Euless, Texas, police department, and is starting a chaplain program for another police department and a local mission network. At his church, Massey leads a financial class, helps with church safety, and is a deacon.
