Many people are asking how they can help provide relief from Hurricane Sandy in NYC. Large parts of NYC still look like scenes from a war movie (read my account of what is going on here). In the meantime, volunteers are being turned away by larger organizations while people in neighborhoods like Far Rockaway and Seagate are crying out for help with clean up and delivering meals.
Donations are being turned away while neighborhoods like Seagate are desperate for warm socks and warm footwear for children and adults, among other things. This won’t happen with any of the contacts below.
My goal is to help channel your volunteer efforts, energy and donations to the organizations that are tirelessly working on the ground, regardless of the weather and such.
