10 Ways to Help the Hurricane Relief Effort

If you’re in New York…

- Head to Staten Island to volunteer if you’re off work or can spare some time.

Give blood - supply is down and there’s a critical need for blood donations in the tri-state.

Donate supplies – there are still many in desperate need of food and clothes to keep warm.

- The Board of Elections needs volunteers in all five boroughs on election day. If you are interested, email sthompsonboe@gmail.com or call 718.619.7793.
