It’s been over a month since Hurricane Sandy ripped through the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, wiping out beaches, flooding subways tunnels and destroying hundreds of homes. Yet there are still many families who are reeling from the loss of their houses and struggling to recover and start to rebuild their communities.
The American Red Cross has deployed thousands of workers and volunteers to the areas impacted by Superstorm Sandy. The relief efforts continue to be a huge undertaking due to the vast areas of Staten Island, Long Island and throughout New Jersey.
As we prepare for a happy and healthy holiday season with our loved ones, we can offer our support through donations to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. To help those who were touched by the devastation, you can visit redcross.org or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. No matter where you live, you can contribute to the rebuilding efforts for someone this holiday season.
