Hurricane Sandy has dramatically impacted the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. NECHAMA staff will arrive in the NY & NJ area later today. We will begin assessing cleanup needs and meeting with local partner organizations once first responders and utility crews have secured the affected communities.
We will work as rapidly as possible to determine where NECHAMA can be of service and then establish a base of operations. At that point we will provide details on how to volunteer with us on the ground. NECHAMA has deployed a disaster response trailer from our headquarters in Twin Cities, MN to support this effort.
Though we are still gathering info and working the logistics regarding volunteer opportunities, you can register your interest and availability via this webform.
Please donate. Your gift strengthens our ability to quickly bring critical aid and comfort. We will provide additional updates as our response to Hurricane Sandy develops . Thank you for your support of NECHAMA and your generous donation to support these efforts.
