As Hurricane Sandy sped toward the East Coast in October 2012, Newsday and the McCormick Foundation launched a special campaign, through Newsday Charities, to provide relief and recovery services to Long Islanders devastated by the superstorm.
Thanks to the generosity of nearly 5,000 caring donors, along with matching funds from the Foundation, more than $1.6 million has been granted to aid in recovery efforts through the Hurricane Sandy Long Island Disaster Relief campaign. None of this would have been possible without our donors’ help. Thank you.
Residents on Long Island have shown their resilience, united in the face of catastrophe. The Report to the Community provides details on how the money raised is being put to work to help Long Islanders rebuild their homes and lives. We hope you find the report as informational and inspiring as we do.
While the Hurricane Sandy campaign has stopped accepting donations, Newsday Charities is committed to helping those in need on Long Island. We will continue to provide access to opportunities and solutions that help Long Islanders move forward as they strengthen and improve their lives.
