"We already have dozens of organizers working in hubs, working out of homes, mobilizing hundreds of volunteers," Wedes said. "We've worked with local community organizations, Recovers.org, and this really shows that communities do band together, reach out, and support each other."

The Occupy Sandy movement has already received $10,000 in donations via the group's Inter-Occupy website, Wedes said, and has teamed up with climate organization 350.org for a major relief effort this Saturday. New volunteers join every hour, he added.

"It's a pretty diffuse operation here," Wedes said. "But it's reaching thousands."

(Loads more at the link. Word on Twitter has it that 5,000 have volunteered.)

@OccupyWallStNYC: Nearly 5,000 have already signed up to volunteer on our @recovers_org sites." This is why I'm proud of Occupy.

1. If they want to protest anything, it should the 'water bottle' handlers in the upcoming marathon.

Seriously, people are without water, food and electricity and the marathon is allowed to continue?

Really.

2. Yeah that marathon should probably have been postponed.

Bad decision. I think it's fair to pin that on Bloomberg.
