sandy disaster relief

In response to our community’s tragic loss, the Foundation worked to restore the lives of families devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The Foundation set up three relief centers where disaster victims received essential food items and supplies to restore their lives, and worked tirelessly with thousands of volunteers to gut houses, provide clean up, and restore damaged homes. With the help of 15,000 volunteers, the Foundation cleaned and gutted 1,800 homes, carried our mold remediation on 1,000 homes, and completely rebuilt 250 homes. In total, 1,000,000 volunteer hours and $50,000,000.00 in services were provided to storm victims.
