When Hurricane Sandy battered New York one year ago, its fierce flood waters destroyed homes, livelihoods and communities.
On this sad anniversary and every day, Catholic Charities celebrates Sandy survivors. From disaster response professionals visiting parishes to deliver information and resources, to volunteers collecting and distributing food and supplies, to neighbors checking in on neighbors, the entire Catholic Charities community has responded to meet the human needs of the victims, providing help and creating hope for rebuilding lives.
