Hurricane Sandy Relief

While many neighborhoods of New York City were undamaged by Hurricane Sandy, or lost power for a few hours or even several days, many neighborhoods were truly devastated by the storm.

Red Hook and Coney Island in Brooklyn, Breezy Point and the Rockaways in Queens, Long Beach in Nassau County, and the borough of Staten Island were all hit tremendously hard.

I have set up a CrowdRise page to raise money for AmeriCares to help with the recovery efforts.  I encourage you to help with whatever amount you can, whether $5, $50, $100 or more.

My wife and I volunteered recently in at a shelter in Red Hook, where we helped organize donations and hand out food and clothing. When we left the line was still down the block. Many people came in with clothes, food, cleaning supplies and toothpaste, and the items left as quickly as they arrived.
Even if you can’t donate money, please try to donate household items, food and clothing – whatever you can. People right around the corner from you need it desperately.
If you need assistance finding a shelter or place to receive your donation, please contact me.
Thank you.
