Our Impact

Humanity First USA delivered assistance on several fronts. First, we served over 9,000 meals and delivered over 35 tons of aid to homes and distribution centers, making sure survivors’ basic needs were taken care of.

Then, we went to work on the daunting task of cleanup, by coordinating the gutting and cleaning of 80 water-damaged homes, saving residents over $400,000 in repairs. HF further assisted residents in rebuilding by providing $10,000 in gift cards to Hurricane Sandy survivors.
