You can help rebuild communities that were hit by Hurricane Sandy by donating cans of food, volunteering for cleanup efforts—or simply sending a tweet.
Patch is excited to announce our new effort to help support devastated communities after the storm. For every tweet sent with the hashtag #PatchRebuilds, we will donate $1 to the AmeriCares Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund, up to $125,000.
Your contribution will go toward medical and humanitarian aid, grants and programs to help Sandy survivors.
A customized tweet that starts “My heart belongs to…” is created from the Patch Rebuilds website, and tweeters can type in an area they are most connected to that was hit by Hurricane Sandy.
The Media Patch and Delaware County areas were hit by Superstorm Sandy and sustained some damage and power outages, but we were lucky compared to the devastated areas in New Jersey and New York.
Please visit http://rebuilds.patch.com/mediapatch and help your neighbors with a simple tweet.
