Hurricane Sandy may have blown over, but thousands of people are still struggling in the aftermath. Many areas, like the Far Rockaways in New York and along the Jersey Shore, are still without electricity and heat, and the days are getting shorter and much, much colder. Whether you live near or far from these communities, you can help!
