Additional Sandy Relief Grants
More than 15 months after Sandy we find ourselves still very much in this work. The receipt of additional donations over the past several months, Robin Hood’s Relief Committee recently approved more than $1.2 million in grants. All the grants are to organizations we have funded previously. All have been working to help those still suffering because of Sandy. We remain inspired by both the efforts of these providers and that so many donors have kept Sandy as a priority.
These grants fall into two categories, housing or legal counseling. Housing continues be an on-going need. And with many just now receiving insurance payments, with contractor issues mounting and with regulations around government dollars changing, there is still a large need for legal support.
We continue to extend our thanks for the dedication and commitment of individuals and organizations—working together—to help their neighbors in need.
