Help People Affected by Superstorm Sandy
Help provide emergency aid to people affected by Sandy.
Superstorm Sandy was one of the worst weather events in recent U.S. history. Millions remain without power, and homes and infrastructure alike were damaged or destroyed by high winds, storm surge, and intense flooding. More than 90 people lost their lives.
Several states have declared an official emergency, and the full extent of the damage is not yet known. In the wake of the storm, people are looking for food, water, fuel, and disaster aid.
You can help! Our charitable partners are providing emergency aid to those who need it most. Your donation will support these efforts in the aftermath of the Superstorm.
Report from the Field
On November 5th, GreaterGood.org sent the first grant made possible by this Gift: $10,000 to Community Food Bank of New Jersey.
In the days following Hurricane Sandy, this food bank distributed 100,000 lbs of food daily to displaced families.
Even after the waters recede, the need remains. The Community Food Bank and other agencies continue to respond to the needs of hundreds of families all along the East Coast impacted by the devastation.
An additional $15,000 in November was sent to Team Rubicon, an organization of military veterans who put their experience and training to use cleaning up disaster sites. The group has provided multiple teams to stricken areas of New Jersey and New York, bringing needed supplies to homeowners and helping with the clean up.
