      There are lots of ways to help! You can donate to the Salvation Army (aiding those in crisis with hot meals, water, and shelter). Send a $10 donation via text message, by texting the word STORM to 80888, and confirm the donation with the word, “Yes.” The Food Bank For New York City is distributing emergency food and supplies. To donate, text FBNYC to 50555 or make a monetary contribution online. The American Red Cross is offering shelter, clothing, supplies, food and blood to Hurricane Sandy victims. To donate $10 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief, text the word REDCROSS to 90999 or you can call 800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767). To donate blood, visit the Red Cross website.

        I already donated money. I would really like to donate supplies. Do you think I can just send a box of supplies to one of the addresses listed above? If so, are they all in NYC and what is the zip code? Thank you!
