Fund In Action

About the Fund


Along the East Coast, the devastation of Hurricane Sandy upended the lives of almost eight million people and left them unable to work, without power and struggling to care for their families, and that’s if they didn’t lose everything—home, job, business, loved ones. Many of the people affected were already vulnerable—facing severe financial challenges, struggling with food insecurity and unable to meet basic needs—essentially unprepared to endure a crisis like the one we’re now facing. As we begin the slow process of recovery, hundreds of thousands of families will need assistance for months and perhaps years to come. United Way will be there to help get them back on their feet.
