Food, Water & Shelter for Hurricane Sandy Victims


View List of Emergency Shelters for Hurricane Sandy in a larger map

Many people are still without power or shelter on the East Coast as a new winter storm hits the region. We are building a list of food, water and shelter for Hurricane Sandy victims below–see if the shelters and resources near you need support.

We’ve also collected ways you can volunteer for hurricane relief. In addition, the New York Blood Center needs donations. If your community has resources we should add, be sure to include links in the comments section.
