New York Campus Compact's resources to help victims of Hurricane Sandy's Destruction

It’s a difficult moment for those of us who are New Yorkers living well outside of the destructive path that Hurricane Sandy took earlier this week. There is a strong impulse in all of us to DO something. Well, you can.

Donate money and blood to the Red Cross. Over 100 blood drives were canceled in the New York Metropolitan area last week due to the storm. Blood supplies are reported to be very low. Equally as important, take the money you would spend on gas and travel to help out in New York City and donate it to the Red Cross.

I have included several links below. All are great ways to stay in touch with recovery efforts.

Finally, let’s continue to keep our friends in the wider NY Metropolitan Area in our thoughts as they continue their process of recovery.

Best wishes to all of you,
Laurie
