The father of the West Chester teenager who was killed in a road rage incident less than three months ago is channeling his sorrow by helping with the Hurricane Irma recovery efforts, writes Aaron Moselle for NewsWorks.

Rodney Roberson, whose daughter Bianca was fatally shot along Route 100 in late June, hopes the relief mission to the U.S. Virgin Islands will help ease his pain.

“It’s kind of a therapy for me to come out here and do something that’s helping people,” he said. “This is something that she would have very much been proud of. She would have said, ‘Way to go, Dad.'”

Roberson is part of a crew that will spend the next two months docked on a boat in St. Thomas that will also serves as a makeshift hotel for the more than 350 government workers who are helping the devastated island.
