NYDIS Presents Red Cross with Partner of Year Award
“The Red Cross is proud to stand with such a great group of organizations that have worked tirelessly to help people affected by Sandy,” said Josh Lockwood, CEO, Red Cross Greater New York Region. “By working together, we are able to help people recover in many different ways.”
This summer, the Red Cross awarded a nearly $3 million grant to NYDIS to support long-term recovery services for people affected by Sandy. The Unmet Needs Roundtable program is an established long-term recovery resource that customizes assistance for eligible Sandy clients in need.
Founded in response to 9/11, NYDIS is a faith-based federation of more than 80 service providers and charitable organizations that collaborate to provide disaster readiness, response and recovery services to New York City.
