As residents of the Sun City, it is easy to forget how adverse weather conditions can truly cripple the lives of others. While we enjoy another day of sunshine, those affected by Hurricane Sandy are struggling as life returns to normalcy. The United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund has been established by the United Way of New York City and United Ways along the east coast and will be used for recovery in FEMA declared disaster areas. Credit card donations of any amount are being accepted at www.UWSandyRecovery.org and a text-to-give option is available. To make a $10 donation, text RECOVERY to 52000.
In addition to the recovery fund, United Way 2-1-1s are being utilized to connect people with Human Services and volunteer opportunities. Communities and residents in need can reach out to United Way 2-1-1 for assistance. Individuals wanting to lend a hand during this recovery phase can find opportunities at www.211us.org.
The United Way of El Paso County recognizes the generosity of our community and encourages all El Pasoans to consider making a difference. LIVE UNITED.
