As the New York and New Jersey areas struggle to recover from the wreckage caused by Hurricane Sandy this week, non-profits are rushing to help their neighbors in need.
Considered one of the area’s most vital charities, Covenant House provides shelter for homeless, at-risk, and runaway youth. Founded in Manhattan’s lower east side 30 years ago, this organization has since broadened its outreach across the U.S. and in Latin America, helping nearly 80,000 children and teens each year.
In the aftermath of this devastating storm, the shelter in Atlantic City sustained considerable damage, and the staff of both the Newark and New York shelters have had tremendous difficulty commuting to work. Nevertheless, generous volunteers continue their steady stream of support, working around-the-clock to provide warm meals and a safe haven for hundreds of refugees.
The Alfus Group is proud to contribute to Covenant House’s team, placing their Director of Human Resources earlier this month.
To help their ongoing effort, text KIDS to 80888 to donate $10. You can also visit Covenant House’s Emergency Relief Effort Page to make a donation in the amount of your choice. Donations of any amount will help these tireless volunteers continue to rally support and provide emergency aid in the days and weeks to come.
