Are you like me and want to know how to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy? Here are a few great resources I found on the ABC News website for ways to support victims.
The Red Cross
All donations will be used to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by the storm. To donate you can visit www.redcross.org, call 800-Red-Cross or text the word “Redcross” to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army has set up mobile feeding units and shelters along the East Coast that are working to serve the most heavily hit areas.
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 their website at www.feedingamerica.org or call 800-910-5524.
AmeriCares is providing medicine and other supplies to hurricane victims.
World Vision is distributing flood clean-up kits, personal hygiene items and emergency food kits.
Save The Children
Save the Children is also working to provide relief to families and their children.
And of course, before you make any donations, make sure you are doing it smartly. Check out this great article from Huffington Post – Ten Tips For Giving Smart
