Patch is excited to announce our new effort to help support devastated communities after the storm. For every tweet sent with the hashtag #PatchRebuilds, we will donate $1 to the AmeriCares Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund, up to $125,000.
Your contribution will go toward medical and humanitarian aid, grants and programs to help Sandy survivors.
A customized tweet that starts “My heart belongs to…” is created from the Patch Rebuilds website, and tweeters can type in an area they are most connected to that was hit by Hurricane Sandy.
The city was hit hard by the storm and residents are still recovering. Many residents did not gain power until late last week or early this week. Residents in many parts of the city lost their homes and possessions to flooding.
Newarkers continue to work hard to repair damage to their homes left in the wake of Sandy and the nor'easter a few days later.
