Support Sandy Recovery
The emergency response may be ending, but the longer-term recovery effort in the wake of Superstorm Sandy will take months and years. Please donate to one of these nonprofits providing support to those affected by the hurricane and helping rebuild communities.
AMERICAN RED CROSS; The American Red Cross is working closely with government and community partners on longer-term recovery efforts for survivors. Part of the Red Cross efforts over the next several months will involve one-on-one work helping those who have trouble finding assistance on their own. In addition, the Red Cross will be supporting projects and programs of other non-profit groups in the New York and New Jersey areas, such as working with several local food banks to help Sandy survivors have access to food during the new year. Designate your gift to 'National Disaster Relief'.
FOODBANK FOR NEW YORK CITY; In addition to the 1.5 million New Yorkers that rely on our programs and services, thousands more people have now been thrust into a highly vulnerable position for the first time due to Hurricane Sandy. Hunger has become an even greater problem citywide, and Food Bank remains committed to helping those in need. Designate your gift to ‘Emergency Response’.
COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF NEW JERSEY; The New Jersey Recovery Fund is a joint effort between local and national foundations, NJ corporations and individuals to provide intermediate and long-term support for NJ communities and nonprofit organizations that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Designate your gift to ‘New Jersey Recovery Fund’.
UNITED WAY HURRICANE SANDY RECOVERY FUND; To respond to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, United Way U.S.A. has established the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund, managed by the United Way of New York City. Contributions to the Fund will be used by local United Ways along the Eastern Seaboard to address the near and long-term recovery needs of communities that FEMA has declared disaster areas. Designate your gift to ‘Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund.
