Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy made landfall on Monday evening, Oct. 29, in New Jersey and left a trail of destruction, floods, and power outages for millions of people across the northeast United States and earlier in the Caribbean.

 

CWS is responding

CWS is providing material resources, including blankets, hygiene kits, school kits, baby kits and clean-up buckets to local agencies in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

CWS Disaster Response Specialists are working with state, regional and local organizations, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, our member denominations and other agencies to determine where further assistance is needed.
