Helping Out Hoboken
Nov 16, 2012 12:30 PM
Furnished Quarters continues its ideas for ways to help the restoration efforts after Hurricane Sandy. One of the areas hardest hit by the storm was Hoboken, New Jersey, where over 50 percent of the city was flooded and left without power, and floodwaters took over a week to recede.
Although power has been restored to many Hoboken residents, some are still displaced, have lost their belongings, and need to rebuild their lives. Consider lending a helping hand to Hurricane victims in Hoboken by getting involved with one of the following organizations:
Heal Hoboken, initiated by the NJ Tech Meetup community in Hoboken, has pledged to raise over $100,000 to help repair the damage done to the city of Hoboken during Hurricane Sandy. Those who donate also receive a Heal Hoboken hoodie or t-shirt.
The Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund was established by Hoboken’s Mayor Dawn Zimmer and the City of Hoboken, with assistance from local organizations and charities. Donations to the fund will provide immediate help to people affected by Hurricane Sandy.
New Jersey Relief Fund
NJ Governor Chris Christie and his wife Mary Pat Christie have created a relief fund to “aide, comfort, and rebuild New Jersey” in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. You can visit the website at the link above, or send donations to:
Hurricane Sandy, New Jersey Relief Fund, P.O. Box 95, Mendham NJ 07945-0095.
You can also text NJ to 41444 to donate.
Wherever you choose to focus your relief efforts in the Northeastern region, remember Furnished Quarters to help you stay safely.
