In the Bay Area, we know what devastation a community can experience when hit with a natural disaster. Our thoughts are with family, friends, and the 8 million people impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
United Way has set up a Hurricane Sandy relief fund. Click here for more details. All donations will go directly toward immediate and long-term recovery efforts.
The Red Cross is already on the ground dealing with the recovery effort, and you can also donate to their work.
In addition to immediate relief efforts, United Way’s 211 is providing crisis assistance and will continue to work with families throughout the rebuilding process. If you or someone you know is experiencing disaster-related distress. 211 is the non-emergency information phone line during times of disaster to get linked to information, food, shelter, and evacuation routes.
Whether it’s referring Hurricane Sandy victims to 211, or contributing to the relief efforts, let’s lend a hand to help our East Coast friends in their recovery. Let’s show our Bay Area can-do attitude. And let’s be a part of the national community that’s coming together during this difficult time!
