In the aftermath of Hurricane
Sandy, United Way agencies across the country are assisting the
United Way of New York City in its coordinated efforts with United
Way U.S.A. by encouraging donations to a regional fund that will
address immediate and long-term recovery needs for residents in
Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New
Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, West
Virginia and Washington, D.C., in communities that FEMA has declared
Donors can designate funds to a specific state or for general
assistance to be used where it is needed most. Donations can be made
www.uwsandyrecovery.org. A $10 donation can be made by texting
the word RECOVERY to 52000. Contributors can help promote the United
Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund on Twitter by using #sandyfund.
Almost 8 million people became victims of Mother Nature when
Hurricane Sandy brought her fury ashore and caused flooding, power
outages and wreaked general havoc across the Eastern Seaboard.
In keeping with the United Way's mission of making a difference
in its communities, the United Way of New York City took the lead to
create a unified effort to help those affected by the storm and will
work closely with United Way leaders in the affected states to
allocate the designated funds in a transparent and efficient manner.
The United Way of New York City is not deducting administrative
funds from the special fund donations.
