Island Harvest
to Island Harvest

Island Harvest is Long Island's largest hunger relief organization. It serves as the bridge between those who have surplus food and those who need it. Volunteers and staff "rescue" good surplus food from over 800 local restaurants, caterers, farms, and other food-related businesses. Since Hurricane Sandy hit, Island Harvest has been operating in emergency response mode, working around the clock to assist hurricane-stricken Long Islanders. Island Harvest's mobile food pantries have been visiting some of the hardest hit communities devastated by the super storm bringing food and personal care items to thousands of residents in need.

Community FoodBank of New Jersey
to Community FoodBank of New Jersey

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is a member of Feeding America and distributes 39 million pounds of food and groceries a year. Along with their partner distribution organizations, they help to feed 900,000 low-income people in 18 of New Jersey's 21 counties. When Sandy hit, the FoodBank sprang into action, distributing 100,000 lbs of food per day to families devastated by the storm. Despite being without power itself for several days, the FoodBank still delivered truckloads of food to shelters.

Red Hook Initiative
to the Red Hook Initiative

The Red Hook Initiative is a community organization dedicated to empowering youth in the low-lying Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook. Since Sandy flooded the neighborhood, their community center has become a hub for donations and volunteers. Thousands of Red Hook residents are still without heat, electricity, and in some cases, running water. And the Red Hook Initiative has been a lifeline for many homebound residents, delivering meals in high-rises with no elevator service.

New York Communities for Change
to New York Communities for Change

New York Communities for Change is a coalition of working families in low and moderate-income communities fighting for social and economic justice throughout New York State. Since Hurricane Sandy hit, NYCC has been collecting and distributing supplies to families in the Rockaways and the Long Island Shore. This weekend, they're organizing a massive canvass to make sure that every resident in that devastated and largely low-income community gets the aid they need. Note: Gifts to New York Communities for Change are NOT tax-deductible.

Make the Road New York
to Make the Road New York

Make the Road New York forges alliances between diverse New York communities that face shared hardships and injustices. Port Richmond, a community where Make the Road works on the North Shore of Staten Island, is the fastest growing immigrant neighborhood in New York City. It was devastated by Sandy and gas shortages have made it difficult for volunteers to get to the community from the rest of New York. That's why organizations like Make the Road, which already have a base in the community, are so important. Civic Action
to Civic Action Civic Action, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, has engaged in citizen actions such as protecting public financing for NPR and PBS. It runs, which lets anyone start a petition to hold their leaders accountable, and is currently hosting many campaigns to help speed aid to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Note: Gifts to Civic Action are NOT tax-deductible.
