Project Hurricane Sandy: Helping the families & Individuals whose lives have been disrupted.•When Jason and I first started thinking about our project we were in manydifferent avenues of what to do, It wasn’t until after Hurricane Sandy that we gotour inspiration. A local restaurant: The Courtyard Café, heard about our projectfrom a former classmate, and was more than excited to help us. With the use oftheir facility and the ability to advertise through them, social network sites, theradio station and TV; our efforts to help was just beginning. The Red Cross wasworking very hard everyday to provide relief to the victims of Hurricane Sandy allover the East Coast.•We collected mostly clothing, blankets, shoes and monetary donations that wewill be giving to the Red Cross to go towards our effort to help. We are stillgetting donations as we speak.
Hurricane Sandy’s affect on Maine: •Sandy tore through the East Coast leaving many without power, major flooding and complete devastation for some families, whose homes had been destroyed. •The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, brought much attention to the east coast and we got to see the real meaning of helping your neighbor.• Through fundraising ,donations and volunteers; people from all over are coming to theEastern states to help re build and provide support for those whose lives have been affected.By offering places to stay, shelter and clothing.

Esha: I learned so much from this project andas Jason said it became less of a project as wecontinued into it.
