How to help Superstorm Sandy victims

Red Cross – To donate, visit www.redcross.org, call 800-Red-Cross, or text the word "Redcross" to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Nearly 100 Red Cross blood drives were canceled because of Sandy, so blood supplies are low in the areas affected the most. The Red Cross asks that those who can donate to schedule an appointment to give blood. The New York Blood Center is urging people to donate blood for those in the New York and New Jersey area. To donate, call 800-933-2566 or visit www.nybloodcenter.org.

The Salvation Army has dozens of mobile feeding units and shelters along the East Coast that are working to serve thousands in the most affected areas. Visit www.salvationarmyusa.org to donate.

Feeding America has thousands of pounds of emergency food, water, and supplies in the disaster zone to distribute to the storm's victims. To donate, visit www.feedingamerica.org or call 800-910-5524.

AmeriCares is providing medicine and other supplies to people affected by Hurricane Sandy. To donate, visit www.americares.org.

World Vision is distributing flood clean-up kits, personal hygiene items, and emergency food kits to people affected by Hurricane Sandy. To donate, visit www.worldvision.org.
