Hurricane Sandy devastated residential and commercial areas in America’s upper-east coast and caused an estimated 60 billion dollars worth of damage.
A few weeks have passed since the storm, but there are massive amounts of damage in many areas that will take months to repair.
Breezy Points in Queens, NY was one of the most devastated areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately donations and unrelenting volunteers are supporting a clean-up effort here, but they still need more assistance. So do many other towns, such as Seaside Heights, NJ.

These people need assistance, and they need it now. These people can not solely depend on the government for their aid. Organizations like the American Red Cross have started funds to help these people, and they are depending on donations to sustain their cause. You can find the link to donate to the American Red Cross Sandy Relief Fund through Lehigh University's COMM30 class at the bottom of this, and every other blog post on this site.
It's the holiday season, families are without power, and many are without homes. If you can read this message, and you have the means to donate to our cause, I implore you to follow one of the links and support those most affected by Hurricane Sandy.
#COMM30Sandy is an online class project for the Media & Society class at Lehigh University, taught by professor Jeremy Littau. You can donate to our campaign at this link, and for more information you can email Prof. Littau at firstname.lastname@example.org.
