Helping After Sandy
Having grown up on the Jersey Shore, it was tough to watch CNN and see the twisted, semi-submerged, remains of the roller coaster I used to ride in my summers in Seaside Heights.
This weekend, my mom, in her eighties, was sharing a cup of coffee with us, unable to return to her home in Red Bank after a week of no power or heat. When we opened The New York Times on Sunday, there was a front-page photograph of cars up to their windshields in sand on Long Beach Island, NY, two blocks from her sister’s house; another place filled with memories of fishing trips and body surfing.
The devastation is hard to comprehend.
I realize many of you have likely already found a way to help if you could, and I found these links to organizations to be helpful. If some of you want to give specifically to schools in affected areas, you can visit Donors Choose.
