We have sent a swift response to aid those impacted by SuperStorm Sandy along the East Coast, but there is still much to do.
We have already sent 2.5 million dollars worth of supplies. This includes 12 loads of blankets, which have proven to be incredibly useful in the frigid temperatures that have plagued the region. In addition to the blankets, we’ve sent non-perishables, water bottles, cleaning supplies, pet food and snacks.
In NY alone, we’ve helped people in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, Far Rockaway, Bronx, and Albany. In total, we have sent 24 tractor-trailer loads to the Northeast and one to Charleston, WV. We’re not done yet though. As long as there is need, we’ll be working to fulfill it.
“With such a monster storm late in the year, it is imperative we continue receiving monetary donations,” says Rev. Ron Davidson, founder of GFTW. “This economic climate has made it extremely challenging to procure products and secure funds for shipping. Millions of people felt the effects of the storm, and we want to do our best to relieve as much suffering as we can.”
