Making a financial contribution to a volunteer agency involved in disaster relief is the best way of helping people in need after a disaster.

Donate cash:


The City will work with the Mayor of San Juan to make sure that New York City employees who wish to volunteer will be able to do so. Once it is determined which skill sets are needed from volunteers, the City will connect those employees to organizations already working on the ground.
