THE LIST: 10 GROUPS STILL HELPING NEW JERSEY'S SANDY VICTIMS RECOVER
Hurricane Sandy is yesterday's news; but remains a day-to-day struggle
| New Jersey Spotlight
When Sandy slammed into New Jersey’s coast in October 2012, teams of volunteers from around the country flocked to the region, lending a hand to muck out basements and clear debris. Nonprofit organizations also leapt into action, holding telethons and other fundraising events, eventually pledging more than $380 million to the relief effort throughout the region. Two-and-a-half years later, most of the volunteers have left, and the money is running out. Daily news about the storm recovery has faded from the headlines, yet many residents continue to struggle. Not everyone has moved on, though.
The following groups are still working in the trenches, providing essential services to storm victims up and down the coast. This list is by no means comprehensive, so if there’s a particular group we didn’t include that has helped you and your family or whose ongoing work you feel others should know about and support, feel free to mention it in the comments section below.
