Charity: Water – Hurricane Sandy Update

Hurricane Sandy update.

Dear friends, thank you so much for all your tweets and emails — so many of you checked in to see if we were ok after the hurricane. Our office and about half of our staff lost power the night that Sandy hit, but thankfully no one was hurt and we’re finally all back up and running this week.

This past Saturday, many of our staff volunteered in downtown NYC, distributing food to people in the housing projects on 25th street and the Lower East Side.

Supplies drop-off center in NYC.

We know today is Election Day in the United States, but we’re also continuing to think about the thousands of people who need help on our shores after the hurricane. This morning we assigned two key members of our staff to head up a drop-off center in downtown NYC that will be open for the next few days. If you live in New York, please stop by and drop off essential items to help families hardest-hit by the hurricane. We’re collecting blankets, socks, waterproof shoes, gloves, brooms and cleaning supplies.

Thanks for caring so much in the past week. We’re grateful to have supporters like you.
