Hurricane Sandy was one of the largest storms to hit the East Coast of US. Fuel Relief Fund is a non-profit charitable organization that provides free fuel immediately after a major disaster. We are currently deploying to the New Jersey coastline to provide free fuel for those in need. Primarily, the gas and diesel will be given to individuals and other non-profit agencies for use in generators and vehicles. 100% of funds raised for the relief effort is used to purchase fuel.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Millions of people have been impacted by this hurricane. They are left without electricity, shelter, and other resources.
How will this project solve this problem?
Primarily, the gas and diesel will be given to individuals and other non-profit agencies for use in generators and vehicles. Respondents are being deployed from California and Massachusetts. Upon arrival, needs will be assessed and fuel will be distributed to those most in need.
Potential Long Term Impact
Providing free fuel immediately after a disaster aids victims in evacuating, finding shelter, obtaining medical aid, and beginning to recover and rebuild.
