I have re-posted the call to action from The Boating Times Long Island to gather support for Superstorm Sandy relief:
More than 30 authors have contributed their books to aid Long Island’s rebuilding after Sandy, and we’re raffling them all off together! Proceeds will go to the Long Island Volunteer Center (LIVC), which has opened the Long Island Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (LIVOAD) Volunteer Recovery Center in Bethpage. The Volunteer Recovery Center provides logistical support and coordination for disaster volunteer groups providing Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts on Long Island and actively recruits volunteers for these disaster groups.
The LIVOAD is a coalition of non-profit, government, and for-profit organizations in Nassau and Suffolk Counties committed to working together in the areas of disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. The Volunteer Recovery Center has become a hub of activity from training and equipping volunteers teams to perform muck outs, to in-kind donations management, to planning for coordinated recovery efforts between disaster relief agencies.
