It's a cold winter day. Thousands of homes still have no heat or hot water. We need to get electric space heaters, blankets, coats, gloves and thermal underclothes to children and adults who are freezing. Emergency services (such as "Rapid Repair") isn't getting to these folks fast enough. Make Christmas happy for a family who isn't looking for toys or bling, but necessities to survive. I thank you from the bottom of my heart! As a nurse, I provide compassion and healing hands. As a human being, it is so hard to see those do without basic necessities in life. I too am a Hurricane Sandy survivor who was basically living in a UHAUL van with my husband for three weeks until our electric was turned back on; eight weeks without heat or hot water. I guarantee you all funds will go directly for aid to those in need without overhead expenses. Please make this happen. Thank you.
