Michelle Cortez, a resident of Far Rockaway, tells about her first hand experience with being there during and after the storm. Occupy Sandy is a coalition of people who have come together to help people who have been getting no aid, now day 5, they are still without electricity, their homes are destroyed or full of muddy toxic water. A few friends got together and decided to try to do something to help those people unfortunate enough to be in the path of the hurricane. It blew up. We now have thousands of volunteers delivering hot meals, distributing needed goods to the people who need it.
We have started helping people clean up and rebuild their community. Wont you come join us to? OccupySandy.org
