United Way Celebrates ‘Lives Rebuilt,’ Honors Volunteers One Year After Sandy
Date:10/31/2013

Rye Brook, NY (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

United Way of Westchester and Putnam honored volunteers and organizations from across the community at its 51st Annual Meeting on October 29th which coincided with the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. They celebrated "Lives Rebuilt" by recognizing year-round supporters, discussing progress made on key community issues, and honoring those who supported our neighbors during and after Hurricane Sandy.

“We are so honored to work with such amazing partners. When you look at how much was accomplished in a year that included such a life-changing disaster, you realize how impactful our mission work is to the entire community”, said Naomi Adler, CEO and President of United Way of Westchester and Putnam. “Hundreds of volunteers, partner nonprofits, government workers, and businesses stepped forward to help with us this year and we owe them a big ‘thank you’.”

In addition to its year-round work, United Way convened agencies and rallied volunteers to best serve thousands of scared and frustrated residents before, during and after Hurricane Sandy. United Way’s 2-1-1 answered over 25,000 calls ranging from people stranded in their homes without food to people who needed to know what roads were open in order to get to work. There were also 1,300,000 disaster related web searches at United Way’s information portal http://www.hudson211.org.

Despite the storm, the United Way work in education, income and health still continued. Over 17,000 children and adults learned to live healthier through exercise, gardening programs, and nutritional education. Over 800 adults who have been chronically unemployed found a path out of poverty through job training. Tutoring and school support grew so 800 at-risk children stayed engaged in their education among other successes.
