United Way's Hurricane Sandy Recovery Efforts


Breezy Point -- where my cousins live

This picture is Breezy Point where some of our family and friends live. It is representative of the destruction throughout the coastal towns of NY and NJ.

We humbly ask our friends, family and co-workers to consider making a $5 donation to helping PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST SO MUCH. If all of our facebook friends each donated $5 we could raise over $2000 to help those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, specifically NY and NJ where our family and friends live. Where our hearts will always be.

The United Way is a great way to donate. Not only does Danielle's sister work for United Way, but United Way has a Compassion Fund which enables them to donate what insurance and FEMA can't provide. United Way has already begun giving out gift cards for clothing and will be there for the long-term recovery effort. When all the other relief agencies fade into the background, United Way will be there helping people get back on their feet with basic essentials like clothing, food, mattresses and other critical items that people need WHEN THEY HAVE LOST EVERYTHING.

Please consider giving $5. This specific page we are setting up will go directly to those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

 

With love and gratitude,

Danielle, Sam & Kimberly

Here is a note from United Way:

The United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund was established to address the near-term and long-term recovery needs of individuals, families and communities along the Eastern Seaboard that were impacted by Hurricane Sandys devastation. Contributions to the Fund will be used by local United Ways in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia to address hurricane recovery needs in communities that FEMA has declared disaster areas.

At the request of and in cooperation with United Way U.S.A., United Way of New York City is leading fundraising efforts and will ensure that all funds are used efficiently and effectively to serve those in need. United Way of New York City will charge no administrative fees.

If you have any questions about the fund, please send an email to communication@uwnyc.org, and we will reply as promptly as possible.
