Responding to Hurricane Sandy

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, there are a number of charities doing a tremendous job helping with disaster relief and recovery efforts. We want to do our part and hope you will too. If you are able, please consider making a donation today. Here is a list of charitable organizations that are helping:

  • American Red Cross – People count on the Red Cross to help them in their darkest hour. In turn, the support of donors makes it possible for the Red Cross to fulfill its humanitarian mission. You can help victims of Superstorm Sandy by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
  • Samaritan’s Purse – Samaritan’s Purse is helping victims of Hurricane Sandy at three locations in New Jersey, and a fourth base in New York. Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Relief Unit is also mobilizing and equipping volunteers to help with recovery efforts. Most of the work will likely be tree removal and mud-outs. (If you are interested in volunteering, please visit click here.)
  • Salvation Army – The Salvation Army was able to have units in place before the storm made landfall and has been serving the people of New Jersey affected since. So far The Salvation Army of New Jersey has served over 32,000 meals, 27,000 snacks, 27,000 bottles of water, and countless cups of coffee to first responders and shelter residents. The Salvation Army has also provided over 1,060 changes of clothes to shelter residents across the state.
  • The Bowery Mission – As one of the oldest rescue missions in New York City, Bowery has served homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879. Today, the mission is at the forefront of providing safe shelter and food to help those left homeless and displaced by Hurricane Sandy, effectively tripling its normal capacity. The supply of food and pantry items is drastically decreasing at a time when it is needed most. Please give generously to help those who have nowhere else to go.
