The US has experienced over $40 billion in property damage as a result of the hurricane and has grieved the death of more than a 100 Americans. Many selfless volunteers and disaster relief organizations including FEMA, The Red Cross and the Salvation Army have been aiding victims who are left without electricity, heat, food, and in many cases, shelter.

Helping Hands Relief Foundation, in cooperation with various Turkish American organizations, has deployed volunteers from Turkish American community to help the victims, who are in desperate need, in NJ and NYC.
