      RESOURCES

      How to Volunteer or Donate to Hurricane Sandy Response Efforts

      National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (NVOAD) has posted information on how individuals can give their time or resources to those affected by the storm.  For more information, please visit: http://www.nvoad.org/help%c2%a0

      American Red Cross Disaster Relief - Become an American Red Cross Spontaneous Volunteer by contacting Leslie R. Fletcher, Director of Volunteer Administration, at leslie.fletcher@... or (215) 405-8558 or (267) 246-4521.

      Blood donations are needed not only because of the injuries caused by the powerful storm but also because 100 blood drives on the East Coast have been cancelled in 11 states. All blood types are needed right now. For more information on how to donate, go to redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-REDCROSS.

      Salvation Army - The Salvation Army recommends having a three-to-five day supply of food and water for each member of your family, as well as flashlights, medication and battery powered radios. It's never too early to make sure you (and your neighbors, friends, and family) are prepared for the next snow storm or natural disaster.

      Those interested in volunteering should register at www.disaster.salvationarmyusa.org. Please note that disaster service training is a prerequisite for volunteering in a disaster zone, and not all registered volunteers will be called on to serve.

      Philabundance – While it’s not guaranteed that your donation will go directly to a Hurricane Sandy victim, the Philadelphia nonprofit is currently facing a critical food shortage. You can donate to the organization at www.philabundance.org.

      Jersey Cares - Anyone who wants to volunteer in NJ can call 1-800-JERSEY7.
