New York Cares is on the frontlines of disaster relief, working around the clock to bring post post-Hurricane Sandy aid where it is needed most. Since the storm, we have deployed thousands of volunteers to the hardest hit neighborhoods, distributing hot meals and warm coats, helping local social service agencies get back up and running, and mucking out homes that were ravaged by the storm.
We were the first faces that many displaced New Yorkers saw – a reminder that in these especially tough times, New York Cares is here for them.
But our work didn’t start when the waters rose, and it won’t stop when the headlines have faded.
Every year, more than 400,000 New Yorkers depend upon New York Cares to build a better life. Day in and day out, we help high-risk students get into college; we provide job training to unemployed adults; we teach kids the joy of reading – and so much more. And now – and for as long as it takes – we bring hurricane relief and restoration to our suffering neighbors.
A gift to New York Cares is an investment in our city’s future. Your support is needed now more than ever.
