Watching the damage from Hurricane Sandy seems almost incomprehensible.
The Todd and I actually went down to New Orleans to help with the cleanup after Katrina, and I thought that was as bad as it got. Sandy has left unimaginable damage, and watching people who are cold, hungry, terrified and overwhelmed seems like footage from some Third World tragedy.
But there’s something that every one of us can do, take a look at the following suggestions and see what fits your desire to help:
The Salvation Army has dozens of mobile feeding units and shelters along the East Coast that are working to serve thousands in the most heavily hit areas. Visit www.salvationarmyusa.org to donate.
Feeding America has thousands of pounds of emergency food, water and supplies in the disaster zone that it is working to distribute to the storm’s victims. To donate, visit www.feedingamerica.org or call 800-910-5524.
AmeriCares is providing medicine and other supplies to people affected by Hurricane Sandy. To donate, visit www.americares.org.
World Vision is distributing flood clean-up kits, personal hygiene items and emergency food kits to people hit by the hurricane. To donate, visit www.worldvision.org.
