As discussed here, constantly on TV, in the papers and elsewhere, Hurricane Sandy decimated the Rockaways last week and the people there can still use your help, though it's great to hear stuff like this:
Volunteers showed up in droves today and the residents of Rockaway cannot thank you enough. We have had such positive feedback from the community, calling you "angels" and "superheroes."
