Help in Hurricane Sandy Recovery Efforts
United Ways along the Eastern Seaboard are banding together to address the near-term and long-term recovery needs of affected individuals, families, and communities. The United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund has been established to support those who will continue to feel the effects of Hurricane Sandy for months to come. Contributions to the fund will be used by local United Ways in 12 states, including New Jersey, to address hurricane recovery needs in communities that FEMA has declared disaster areas.
