Hurricane sandy help
The past few weeks have been rough for the residents of New York and New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Many areas including Rockaway, Queens are still without heat and power. I was so inspired by my friend and neighbor who collected donations this past week, rented a minivan, and drove down to deliver some much needed help. You can read more about Martha in the article Hamilton Mom Hopes to Help Sandy Victims Who Helped Her on Sept. 11 from our local paper.
Consider other ways you might be able to volunteer your time. Go to the Occupy Sandy web site for the most current information.
I also just learned about this Occupy Sandy Registry on Amazon. So easy, especially if you already have an account on Amazon. Simply go to the link above and choose specific items that are desperately needed such as cleaning supplies and baby items.
And of course, The American Red Cross is in the areas hardest hit providing hot meals, clean water, and support. You can donate directly to The Red Cross at their web site here.
