for the last four-five days i have woken up and immediately started extensive research on the current state of the weather, the city i live in, and the state of affairs in the aftermath. (i am very lucky and grateful that i still have power when thousands do not. i recognize this fact.)
to support the sandy relief that is happening throughout all the boroughs, i have pulled together the most comprehensive list of volunteer needs and opportunities. these include resources, sign-ups, and basic information. each of these links (for the most part) includes their own set of links for volunteer opportunities.
it really is extensive, the need spreads out far. help is needed in NJ desperately – so if you are able to head down there, that would be amazing. some of the links include resources for NJ volunteers as well.
i will try to update this as i find out more information throughout the day.
