If you can't make it out to XFinity Live to donate for the Salvation Army, there are other ways you can help. Below is a list of organizations in our area who are collecting money and items for our neighbors affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Don't forget that after a crisis, the American Red Cross is in need of blood donations. Supplies are depleted during a natural disaster or emergency, and blood donations drop because people in affected communities cannot make it out to donate blood. Please consider giving the gift of live by making an appointment to donate blood.
