Hurricane Sandy Recovery Efforts


Our communities shared a common experience this week – Hurricane Sandy. And though we all shared in the fear and uncertainty of this unprecedented storm, some of us were lucky enough to have escaped Sandy’s path. Those residents are now looking for ways to help. United Way has received many inquiries on how to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and would like to share some of the ways in which you can make an impact in the recovery efforts:


  • There is no question that volunteers will play a critical role in the recovery of our region. From clean-up to service to collecting supplies, volunteers are needed.
  • For current opportunities, visit: United Way’s Community Action Center website OR
  • *These sites will be updated periodically as the needs and circumstances are continually changing at this time





UWSNJ Recovery Fund

A recovery fund has been set up locally to support efforts in our South Jersey region. To make a donation of $10, text UWIMPACT to 50555. Funds raised will support immediate response and long term recovery efforts in the Jersey Shore communities most affected by the storm. 


United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund

This was established to address the near-term and long-term recovery needs of individuals, families and communities along the Eastern Seaboard that were impacted by Hurricane Sandy’s devastation. Contributions to the Fund will be used by local United Ways in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia to address hurricane recovery needs in communities that FEMA has declared disaster areas. At the request of and in cooperation with United Way U.S.A., United Way of New York City is leading fundraising efforts and will ensure that all funds are used efficiently and effectively to serve those in need. United Way of New York City will charge no administrative fees. Donations canbe made online at
