With millions effected by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, The American Maverick encourages our loyal readers to reach out with a generous contribution to support recovery efforts.
Americans in New York, New Jersey, other coastal states, and West Virginia were adversely effected by this storm. With tidal surge and intense winds to the coast and tremendous snow fall in West Virginia, the needs of millions of Americans are mounting. Many families have lost their homes and essentials. Escaping with their life. However, 125 deaths were due to this hurricane. Now two weeks since the storm, over 500,000 homes are still without power. And millions need provisions and shelter till they can get their life back together.
As a former consultant for the American Red Cross, I (Flint Engleman) recognize and appreciate the work of organizations geared to provide direct assistance to those impacted by disaster. One of the best ways you can help is by making a cash contribution. A cash contribution to a disaster relief organization such as the Red Cross, gives them the funds to purchase essential provisions at a bulk price. Organizations such as the Red Cross and Salvation Army are very effective using cash, quickly acquiring supplies, and transporting directly to those who need help the most. Your contribution can be the difference in helping those to recover.
The American Maverick would like our readers and listeners to consider making a monetary gift to support our fellow Americans through their recovery. Here is a short list of groups ready to serve those in need:
