Boston Cares is working closely with our local partner agencies and national HandsOn Network to identify volunteer opportunities in the communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy to ensure a coordinated response. Please note that due to the number of people interested in volunteering, as soon as an opportunity is identified, it is filled. We are working with national and local partners to identify more opportunities in the midst of our current challenges, including transportation issues, lack of fuel in the area, identifying volunteer housing and massive power outages. These challenges make it difficult to get team out to assess the need and scope projects. While we are working diligently, please understand it may be a few days before we increase the number of projects in the impacted area.
In the meantime, there are additional ways you can engage now:
- By registering for our Disaster Response Mailing List, you will receive up-to-date information, including when new volunteer opportunities are posted.
- Donate supplies and materials by clicking here to ensure you are sending the MOST needed items
- Donate to local relief effort by clicking here.
- Host a local fundraiser and donate the proceeds by clicking here.
We request that you do NOT self- deploy to the region without identifying an opportunity AND housing. Once volunteer housing becomes available, we will update our website with the information on how to book reservations.
