What should we do to help the survivors, what are you doing to help survivors of Hurricane Sandy?
We were without power for 4 days. We have been cleaning up our home and yard for days. We have thrown out over $300 worth of food and supplies. There are gas lines and the stations are gouging us with prices going from $3.81last Monday to $4.25 yesterday. With all that we are blessed to be alive. Relatives on Long Island are still without power. Family in South Jersey, Brooklyn and Staten Island still haven't been heard from. But my/our main concern is what can we do to help others in need. Texting REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 was the least we could do. What other suggestions do you have?
DoSomething.org is also taking donations and they recommend that if people can't do anything else to help then donating to their local food pantrys help out because much of the food donated to the people effected comes from food pantrys so donating to your own will help feed your locals allowing more to go toward storm victims...I said that in a round about way but it's something like that.
I donated food to my local pantry because I couldn't do anything more at this time.
Hi SEXYLADYDEE! I am praying for a speedy restoration in getting their lives back to normal. This is something we all can do because there is power in prayer. We can of course donate if we can and where we can. Thanks for asking that question!
You can volunteer to work with the American Red Cross. I am a Disaster Services volunteer with Red Cross. Volunteers do a lot of training so you may not be able to work directly with the Sandy disaster but there are disasters every day in your area and around the world that the Red Cross helps with.
Since I have a full time job I only work local diasters right now. I get called out when something happens in the area like a single family home fire, apartment fire, tornado destruction, or flood. We provide food and snacks to the victims and emergency workers and assist the family to make sure they have a place to stay, food, clothing, etc. It is extremely rewarding.
