Here is a quick list of some of the organizations that are currently providing support to those impacted by this devastating storm.
The New York Blood Center. If you live close to the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area you should consider donating blood or plasma to the New York blood Center.

The American Red Cross. Red Cross workers will provide food, shelter, and other support to the victims of the storm as long as is needed. Visit www.redcross.org to make a donation, or call 800–Red Cross. You can also send an instant donation of $10 by texting “Redcross” to 90999.
