Adam’s Angels
Our friend Jill Pall of Adam’s Angels is spearheading a drive for people to send gift cards (such as Home Depot, Target, etc.) to help people rebuild their homes.  For more information on where to send, contact or see their page on facebook.  They will be working with reputable all volunteer organizations in Long Island / NYC on this project. (You know, the ones that don’t ask for any publicity but constantly do good things w/no overhead costs).  These partners will work directly with those who have lost their homes and belongings to determine exactly what is needed. This is different than just collecting supplies. They will be able to purchase what is needed and deliver directly to where it is needed.
You can also make a donation on-line at:
Adam’s Angels is a completely volunteer-driven program in memory of firefighter Adam David Rand (FDNY, Squad 288 & Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department), who became an angel on September 11, 2001 while saving others.

Our friends at the bars of In Good Company Hospitality Group ( Saloon, Libation, Park Ave. Tavern, Good Co., Yorkville Creperie) have set up a fund, In Good Company Hospitality Relief Fund to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy along the Rockaway Peninsula and Broad Channel, who have lost everything.
