Robin Hood launched a large-scale relief effort to aid our neighbors in the tri-state area whose lives were shattered by Hurricane Sandy. Within hours of the storm, Robin Hood-funded non-profits were providing blankets, hot food, heaters and generators and more to residents in Red Hook, Coney Island, the Rockaways, and all across the region.
As of April 9, Robin Hood has allocated 100% of all the funds raised for Hurricane Sandy Relief - $70.5 million - to 391 organizations across the tri-state area. In total, 44% of the Relief Fund went to organizations helping individuals and families in New Jersey, 38% to New York City, 16% to Long Island/NY state, and 2% to Connecticut. The vast majority of funds – 67% – went to housing-related programs designed to return families to safe and stable housing. The Robin Hood board of directors pays all administrative and fundraising costs, so every dollar of every contribution went directly to organizations helping victims of super storm Sandy.
