Tweet #PatchRebuilds to Help Hurricane Sandy Survivors

You can help rebuild communities that were hit by Hurricane Sandy by donating cans of food, volunteering for cleanup efforts — or simply sending a tweet.

Patch is excited to announce our new effort to help support devastated communities after the storm. For every tweet sent with the hashtag #PatchRebuilds, we will donate $1 to the AmeriCares Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund, up to $125,000.

Your contribution will go toward medical and humanitarian aid, grants and programs to help Sandy survivors.

You can simply tweet the hashtag #PatchRebuilds, or go to our Patch Rebuilds website, rebuilds.patch.com, and tweet directly from the site.

A customized tweet that starts “My heart belongs to…” is created from the Patch Rebuilds website, and tweeters can type in an area they are most connected to that was hit by Hurricane Sandy.

West Orange was hit hard by the storm and residents are still recovering. Many residents did not gain power until late last week or early this week.

Residents continue to work hard to repair damage to their homes left in the wake of Sandy and the nor'easter a few days later.
