Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

You are here

If you’re looking for a way to help victims of Hurricane Sandy, please think about giving to United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund.  With leadership from United Way of New York City, United Ways along the Eastern Seaboard have established the fund to address near-term and long-term recovery needs of communities most affected by the hurricane. Contributions to the Fund will be used by United Ways in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia to address recovery needs in communities that FEMA has declared disaster areas. We give our sincere thanks to United Way of New York City who will manage the regional fund.

Visit to donate to the Fund.

You can also use your cell phone to text RECOVERY to 52000 to make a $10 donation.


HandsOn Network Volunteer Action Centers and partners across the United States have activated to help coordinate the volunteer response to Hurricane Sandy. We greatly appreciate the willingness of volunteers to help in the aftermath of this historic storm, but please remember that volunteers SHOULD NOT self-deploy. Self-deployment can complicate the efforts of first responders and can be dangerous for volunteers.

If you are interested in helping out, please connect with one of our HandsOn Network affiliates working in the region or the American Red Cross  BEFORE  deploying!  Thank you for your efforts.
