Millions of people in the Northeast have been effected by Monday’s deadly storm, Superstorm Sandy. Along the East Coast, people are without power and some remain in temporary shelters. Property has been destroyed. Though no longer a hurricane, Sandy isn’t finished yet. Initial information makes it abundantly clear: the relief and recovery efforts will be significant.

At a time like this, people want to know how they can help. Relief groups are already moving in, but what can you do? The greatest way to assist during the immediate aftermath is by giving monetary donations to relief organizations. Consider making a donation to one of the following organizations: The American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, or Feeding America.
