Sandy Relief Resources
Faced with the devastation left in Superstorm Sandy's path, Occuprint edited, assembled and produced a relief bulletin with a broad range of resources to empower New York communities as they recover from the storm. Like all resources on this site, you are free to download, print and distribute the bulletin. In fact, we encourage it!
We have printed several thousand copies of the bulletin and they started being distributed in affected New York neighborhoods on November 7, 2012.
The bulletin covers:
Emergency SNAP Benefits
FEMA Disaster Relief
NY is Hiring!
Shelters and Care
Food and Supplies
There's also sudoku to help pass the time.

2. There are tens of thousands now without homes, and the latest storm has knocked out
power for those who just got it back.
Seems the media has moved on even as conditions for tens of thousands of the victims of that storm, grow increasingly worse.
I hope the President will return to the disaster area now that the election is over and keep the focus on the enormous number of victims who are now in danger of freezing as the temps drop into the 30s during the day.
It's hard to express my admiration for the organizations who have not forgotten them and especially to OWS for all they are doing, not just for the election, but because they care about people.
Thanks Fire for keeping the focus on what is important in this world.

3. Yeah seriously.
I'm actually kind of surprised that more attention has not been paid to this on some websites.
Someone said 40,000 people have been made homeless by this storm.
How it's not the top concern, I don't understand.
