In 2012, Superstorm Sandy devastated the Tri-state area, affecting hundreds of thousands of lives, homes, and businesses. Before the waters subsided, Robin Hood took action, organizing a Relief Fund to help those impacted get back on their feet.
Nearly five years after the storm, The Robin Hood Relief Fund has received more than $82 million* in contributions, and every dollar has been distributed to organizations across New York, New Jersey, Long Island, and Connecticut.
Robin Hood was entrusted with more than $82 million in contributions from generous donors in all 50 states and more than 90 countries worldwide. A top priority for our Relief Committee was to get all the funds out as soon as possible.
12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief
In response to the devastation Hurricane Sandy left on the tri-state area, Robin Hood immediately launched a large-scale relief effort. To fund this effort, Robin Hood—with the support of our board of directors and generous partners, including Chase—put on the 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief.
