Sandy Disaster Assistance and How to Help
Our thoughts and prayers are with the millions of New York and New jersey residents that have been affected by Sandy. As we learn how coastal marinas, tackle shops, and headboats are recovering from the storm, we’ll share that information through our weekly Fishing Forecast. We’ll also try to update you over the next few weeks on how boat launches, beaches, piers, inlets and other popular fishing locations were affected by the storm. If you have any updates or photos to share, or if you would like us to help get the word out about volunteer opportunities or donation needs, please email them to email@example.com, or share via Facebook or Twitter.
If you are in need of disaster assistance, please visit the FEMA website at http://www.fema.gov/sandy. FEMA continues to lead the federal government’s effort to provide assistance and support to states affected by Hurricane Sandy, ensuring the federal family and its public and private partners continue to provide all available resources to support state, local, and tribal communities in affected areas. If you have a food-related need, please dial 2-1-1 from a landline phone for a referral to an organization that can assist.
Please consider helping those affected by the storm by donating to a legitimate charitable organization. For more information on how to donate and volunteer, click here: Sandy Donate and Volunteer.
To donate to the Red Cross, visit www.redcross.org, call 800-Red-Cross or text the word “Redcross” to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
Please stay safe. When the time comes, we look forward to seeing everyone once again on the water.
