Kids still need help after Sandy

Community Newspaper Group

Super-storm Sandy blew through the East Coast more than a week ago, but much destruction — and devastation — still lies in her wake. But after such a huge disaster, what can one kid do to help? Plenty! Get inspired and do a mitzvah by reading these moving stories about small heroes helping out in big ways:

• Three seventh-graders in New York City delivered supplies to stranded residents in a powerless 40-story building in Tribeca.

• Kids in New Providence, N.J. cleaned their elderly neighbors’ yards after the storm.

• A classroom of students in Salem, Mass. became inspired by a story of two boys their own age rendered homeless due to Sandy and gave aid.

• Kids in far-away Fort Myers, Fla. — who know first-hand how storms can affect peoples’ lives — hosted a bake sale to raise funds for Sandy’s victims.

• Two teens in the Hudson Heights section of Manhattan collected canned goods for those in need.

• Displaced children in Manhattan spent an afternoon making supportive cards and drawings for other kids who have been affected by Sandy (clip below).
