The worst superstorm in 100 years has left the Northeast, Cuba and Haiti reeling from historic damage. Deaths, floods, power outages and wreckage comprise the plight of communities across the East Coast.
Now is no time to sit on the sidelines; millions of people need your help. Companies can - and should - step up and demonstrate their leadership by engaging their employees in disaster relief for communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.
