Benefiting HUMANITY FIRST USA

The Situation

Hurricane Sandy devastated the East Coast of the United States, claiming over 100 lives and impacting millions of residents. The states of New York and New Jersey were hit the hardest and there are people still stranded in shelters, unsure when they will return to their homes. Those who are able to go back home are finding fallen trees on their streets and homes, and debris everywhere. Humanity First USA has mobilized its disaster response teams to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Humanity First’s Response

The dedicated Humanity First volunteers have been working tirelessly with local authorities to provide to the impacted communities in any manner that they can. Our pool of volunteers continue to work in some of the hardest hit areas, including Lower Manhattan, Howard Beach, Staten Island, and Breezy Point. Volunteers served meals, cleaned up homes, purchased and distrbuted donations, and provided a helping hand as communities begin to rebuild their lives. Through daily assessments, we continue to expand our efforts to serve the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
