Carnival Corporation & Plc Donates $2 Million To Aid Hurricane Sandy Victims

On Dec. 17 Habitat for Humanity deployed the first-ever fleet of Habitat Mobile Response Units from Atlanta to assist communities in New York and New Jersey. The 24 Express vans are especially outfitted with tools and equipment for critical home repairs. www.habitat.org 

Save the Children's domestic emergency response teams were dispatched to New Jersey and New York within 48 hours of the storm to work with children and families in shelters, and communities to identify both short- and longer-term needs. The organization also is coordinating with national partners to assess the critical needs of families impacted by the storm. By Nov. 30, Save the Children had assisted 40,400 children and adults.

The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City is assisting with immediate and long-term restoration efforts throughout New York City's five boroughs. The fund is accepting financial donations to support hurricane relief efforts, and 100 percent of donations are being dispersed to relief efforts and organizations. Grant funds have supported the supply and transport of emergency needs including hot food, toiletries, baby supplies, cleaning materials, warm clothing and medications to communities hit hardest by the hurricane. The Mayor's Fund also is committed to rebuilding and restoration efforts including assistance for displaced families, schools, small businesses, nonprofit organizations, parks and other impacted groups. http://www.nyc.gov/html/fund/html/home/home.shtml
