One of our past Quality of Life grantees, Portlight Strategies is working to help people effected by Hurricane Sandy. Here's an update from them
In our ongoing efforts to help bring relief to forgotten communities, and particularly to people with disabilities and those with health and medical issues, we’ve partnered with People’s Relief, a grassroots coalition bringing together independent volunteers and groups working to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. They are currently working in Coney Island, where the needs are far greater than the media is reporting. One of our goals is to bring much needed media scrutiny to the area. We’ll also be helping with medical equipment and supplies, social media networking, and administrative tasks.
We are working night and day to help improve the situation in Coney Island. There are still so many people stranded, without power, water and/or food; missing vital medical treatments like dialysis and chemotherapy; without medications. The situation is dire and in many cases, one of absolute life or death.
Your help is desperately needed! Please give what you can and spread the word! We’ll keep you updated regularly on how your donations are helping to restore the residents of Coney Island. As always, thank you for your continued support!!
