It seems only the churches are making a big impact in Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. This was pretty much our experience here in Kentucky during our ice storm. I would imagine that local food banks are also providing help. The Red Cross and FEMA, not so much. Watch this video.
If you want to help Sandy victims, contact your local church and ask if they are sending help to Sandy victims or if they can recommend a church in the area of Hurricane Sandy impact that you can donate to.

If you are Catholic, donate to Catholic Charities in Archdiocese of New York, Brooklyn and Queens, Diocese of Metuchen, Wayne County (Newark, NJ), and Diocese of Camden.
