Sandy aftermath: Updated where to help list

    Earlier this month, we ran a list of ways you could help in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Now that the damage is better understood, and relief organizations have had time to figure out where they’re most needed, there are new opportunities. Here’s a few:

    Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund. This non-profit was set up by Gov. Christie and his wife as a place where people can donate to help, specifically, NJ victims of Hurricane Sandy.

    Jersey Cares. This site corrals volunteering needs across the state, and lists where and when helping hands are needed. The site is loaded with information about shore communities that need help.

    Hurricane Sandy – Where to Get Help and Where to Give Help. This is a Google doc of opportunities and information for people who want to give or need help. It’s constantly changing and updated. 

    Jersey Shore Hurricane News. After reporting on the damage, the Fecebook group has been sharing the needs of specific towns (especially fire departments), and also pictures of items washing up on the shore.

    Jen A. Miller writes the Down the Shore with Jen blog for NewsWorks.org. Jen is author of The Jersey Shore: Atlantic City to Cape May, which is now in its second edition.
