As many of you know, I have lived in New York City for the last five years. Harlem, to be specific. We were blessed to survive Hurricane Sandy, and to have maintained a bubble of “normalcy” throughout the storm and afterwards. I was not a Katrina survivor, but I have been an observer, and just from this perspective, it is harrowing to to see the wreckage and the struggle in Rockaway, Staten Island, Red Hook, LES, and all along the NJ coast and not flashback horribly to 2005.
If you are so moved, I encourage you to support Occupy Sandy. These volunteers have been working hard delivering food and supplies and wo/manpower to those who need it since the early days after. If you go to their website, you can see what is needed, in terms of supplies and volunteers. You can donate there. You can even go to their Amazon registry and pick out items and have them sent directly to the volunteers who will get them to those in need.
