How You Can Help the Victims of Hurricane Sandy

In late October, Hurricane Sandy violently swept through the East Coast, causing harmful destruction and torrential flooding. Not only did many people lose their homes, cars and other personal items in the resulting floods, but also several lost their lives.

Please pray for those affected and who experienced loss.

If you would like to support the victims of Hurricane Sandy, there are several ways you can help:

  • You can donate at the American Red Cross website, or you can text the words “Red Cross” to the number 90999 for a $10 donation.
  • If you want to donate clothes, food, canned goods and other items, see if your local church has a donation center set up!
  • You also can give to the Salvation Army. Text the word STORM to 80888 to make a $10 donation. To confirm the donation, respond with the word “Yes.” Or call 800-SAL-ARMY (800-725-2769)
  • Feeding America is another resource for you to help victims get food and clean water.

Remember to get permission from your parents before donating!

NBC also has a comprehensive list of ways you can help.

Don’t forget to call your local church and ask if there are any ministries related to the disaster and storm. Many churches are donating food and other items to help! Your donations and prayers are greatly appreciated.

Let us come together in love, pray for the people affected by this tragic storm and also pray for our nation to come close to God during this time of need and loss.
