One year after Hurricane Sandy, many New York City communities were still rebuilding. We raised more than 4,100 volunteer hours to help.
The Clinton Foundation, St. Bernard Project, NYC Service, and the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation partnered on October 26, 2013 for a day of volunteering in Queens and Staten Island.
During November 2012, in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, we mobilized 1,000 volunteers to help clean up homes and businesses that had been impacted and to distribute supplies in the Far Rockaways. While much progress has been made since then, there's still work to be done to help communities recover. On October 26, Chelsea Clinton led our second Day of Action for New York City to continue our commitment to helping families, businesses, and communities recover in Queens and Staten Island. We asked each person to commit 5 hours of service – our volunteers helped us surpass our goal of 2,500 hours. Together, we volunteered more than 4,100 hours of service. View Updates

Updates On Sandy, One Year Later

Hurricane Sandy caused massive flooding, destructive fires, and extended power outages. The devastation cost New York City tens of billions of dollars and its effect on families, communities, and businesses is still significant. 

Volunteers joined Clinton Foundation staff, the St. Bernard Project, NYC Service, and the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation at several sites in Queens and Staten Island.

On October 26, 2013, hundreds of people joined us to improve the lives of New Yorkers and continued to support those hurt by Hurricane Sandy, letting them know that their needs are not forgotten.
