United Way and AARP Foundation Establish Relief Funds

The United Way and the AARP have established two relief funds to help the victims of Superstorm Sandy on the East Coast.

The United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund will benefit individuals, families, and communities in the federally declared disaster areas. United Way of New York City is leading fundraising and distributing the funds with United Way USA to other local United Ways. The New York City chapter says it will not charge administrative fees on the donations.

The AARP Foundation is matching donations up to $500,000 and distributing those funds to other organizations providing recovery services.
