The Newest Numbers on Sandy

Superstorm Sandy is the largest U.S. response by the Red Cross in over five years. Efforts to restore destroyed areas have gone on for months longer that most relief efforts we’ve seen in the past.

So far Red Crossers have:

  • Served more than 13 million meals and snacks
  • Handed out more than 7 million relief items
  • Provided more than 112,000 health services and emotional support contacts

So far, the Red Cross has spent or made commitments to spend about $145 million. This amount is over half the money raised for Sandy. The Red Cross wants to spend the rest of the money as quickly and but as wisely as possible.
