Hurricane Sandy Relief and Volunteer Teams
New York, NY
Since Hurricane Sandy hit, we have sent many volunteer teams to the affected areas (including Staten Island, Rockaway, and Breezy Point) with food & hot beverages, supplies and volunteers to assist with clean up.
Our next planned volunteer date is January 19th. We invite you to join us! Details will be posted soon.
We will also continue to collect financial contributions through the above link. All monies will be used directly to help Hurricane victims and are fully tax deductible (we are a 501(c)3 organization). To donate supplies, please contact us for current drop off times and locations. (Please note that needs have changed! We are no longer able to collect indoor clothes for example).
If you can help with these or other needs, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
