Hurricane Sandy might have passed us by last week, but she still left a massive amount of ruin for a lot of New Yorkers. If you want to give back and spend your off-time volunteering, we thought we’d help spread the word about where help is most needed and what you can all do to help.

Here are some of the volunteer efforts that we’ve heard about. If you have any to add, please leave a comment or shoot us an email at
