Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts


Like many of you, I watched on in horror as Hurricane Sandy damaged the east coast. New York City is certainly resilient, but even the most resilient places need a little help at times. 20,000 to 40,000 people are left with uninhabitable homes as of today. To put things in perspective here, the population of Ft. Thomas is roughly 16,436.



On a personal note, I was lucky enough to live in Lower Manhattan while attending graduate school. The news coverage is nothing compared to some of the stories I've been hearing from friends back in New York. Many Ft. Thomas natives have made the move to the New York City area over the years, and they now reside throughout the five boroughs and New Jersey. I'd be willing to bet that many of our readers know someone who lives or has lived in the New York City area.

What can you do? Here's a list of resources for helping in the Hurricane Sandy relief effort.
