As the Northeast continues to reel from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy, communities are now turning their efforts towards clean up and relief. Natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy have a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable among us, including people living with HIV/AIDS, making the restoration of vital human services and the institutions that provide them the most urgent priority of the relief effort.
Here are two ways you can help:
1. Donate to the Bailey-Holt House Emergency Fund to help Bailey House repair an AIDS housing facility damaged by Sandy.
2. Donate, volunteer or locate shelters at Occupy Sandy Relief, a coordinated relief effort to help distribute resources and volunteers to help neighborhoods and people affected by Hurricane Sandy.
For people in the New York area, information for people living with HIV/AIDS and methadone patients coping with Hurricane Sandy is available on VOCAL-NY’s website.
