Ways to Contribute to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort in New York

November 1, 2012 @ 03:15 pm by Jacqui Lewis

Here are ways you can contribute to Hurricane Sandy's relief effort:

  • You are invited to assemble and distribute brown bags of prepared food in the East Village on Sunday, November 4. We will pack food items at 9 am and 10 am and distribute after worship at 122 Second Avenue. Email Minister Tricia Sheffield at tsheffield@middlechurch.org, to be a part this.
  • Our partners at the Interfaith Assembly for Homelessness and Housing have organized door-knocking downtown at 200 Madison Street (cross-street is Rutgers Street) on Saturday morning. They''ll be checking on residents and helping distribute aid and identify at-risk residents that need help. For more information, including directions, click here

Here are organizations who are assisting with the relief:

WNYC also offers a list of how you can volunteer in the region:

Huffington Post's "Hurricane Sandy: How To Help & What You Need To Know" is also helpful: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/30/hurricane-sandy-how-to-help_n_2045622.html 

The Interfaith Assembly for Homelessness and Housing is also compiling a list of volunteer opportunities to aid with hurricane relief. That can be found here
