The American Red Cross has a huge relief response underway to Sandy, providing people across a number of states with a safe place to stay, food to eat, and comfort during this difficult time.
The Red Cross has already served more than 100,800 meals and snacks and mobilized more than 2,300 disaster workers and almost 200 emergency vehicles so far and more are being deployed.
“This response to Sandy is just getting started. The storm has left devastation in its wake and we will be helping people for weeks to come,” said J.D. Tenorio, emergency services director of the NMI Chapter. “This will be very costly and the Red Cross needs help now. We ask everyone to support us as we help people recover from this massive storm.”
