How You Can HELP

Supporting those affected by the wrath of Hurricane Sandy

Tuesday, October 30th 2012 New York City, the New Jersey Shore, and many other locations along the Eastern Seaboard began the daunting rebuilding process after the horrifying damages brought upon the city by Monday's Hurricane Sandy. 

Over 100 homes were burned down, millions were left in the dark, the subways and streets of lower Manhattan flood, more than 40 lives in the United States were taken...

Firefighters, and disaster relief workers continue to fight through the devastation left by Sandy's path of destruction- and the statistics continue to grow.
