The American Red Cross continues to provide food, shelter, relief supplies and comfort to the many people in the Greater New York Region still struggling even as power is restored and some communities begin to recover.
Shelters remain open for people unable to return home.
The extensive Red Cross feeding operation in partnership with the Southern Baptist Convention continues, with kitchens and fixed feeding sites spread across New York and New Jersey. To date, 5.6 million meals and snacks have been served.
Here is a list of Red Cross feeding sites currently open in NYC and on Long Island (as of 11/20):
(Meals are served from 11 am to 1 pm and from 4 pm to 6 pm)
LONG ISLAND – Nassau County
LONG ISLAND – Suffolk County
Red Cross volunteers are also driving through neighborhoods to hand out water, food and relief supplies in more than 300 Red Cross feeding trucks mobilized as well as rental cars, trucks and other vehicles. Visit http://newsroom.redcross.org for more information.
The needs are far from over as people continue to clean out their homes and struggle with housing issues, and the Red Cross will continue to provide help to area residents well into the foreseeable future.
This is likely to be the biggest Red Cross response in the U.S. in the past five years, and we have mobilized the full resources of the organization across the country to get help to people.
