As the winter weather starts to creep in, those affected by Sandy need our help more than ever. You can still help through our Family to Family program, through Grab a Shovel’s Sandy Relief pendant, and also uur friends at New York Family have rounded up a list of ways you can still help with Sandy Relief.
“Superstorm Sandy passed in and out of the metropolitan area in approximately 12 hours—but the need to support affected families continues. Relief efforts are moving their focus from addressing immediate issues like power, water, clothes, food, and temporary shelter to longer-term challenges surrounding home- and community-rebuilding, infrastructure, and emergency preparedness. Some needs are evolving, but others are still immediate and critical. The common denominator is that your help really can make a difference. We’ve gathered a list of organizations and groups that are on the frontlines of Sandy relief in various ways. A lot of the information is very time-sensitive, so visit their websites for more info—and if you hear of something that appeals to you, please spread the word.”
