United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund Established

With leadership from United Way of New York City, United Ways along the Eastern Seaboard have established the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund to address near-term and long-term recovery needs of communities most affected by the hurricane. Contributions to the Fund will be used by United Ways in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia to address recovery needs in communities that FEMA has declared disaster areas.

Visit UWSandyRecovery.org to donate to the Fund. You can also use your phone to text RECOVERY to 52000 to make a $10 donation.

Additionally, please encourage those affected by this storm to reach out to United Way 2-1-1 for assistance, plus 2-1-1 can help connect people with volunteer opportunities. Connect with 2-1-1 online and follow @211us on Twitter.

    Hi, I currently live in Wisconsin but have grown up and lived for many years on the Jersey Shore. I am an LPN, currently not working due to college full time starting in Jan. I would like to know how I could volunteer and I not only want to help but I NEED to help the people from my beloved homeland on the Jersey SHore. So many people lost homes and felt the wrath while others lost their memories when the boardwalks were washed away. NOw I may live in the midwest, however, I am a Jersey girl. I have family and friends. 2 of my children and a new grandaughter. THey don’t have power. I would appreciate how I can help hands on style.
    Thankyou,
    Elizabeth Graber
