Noticing the lack of warm, nutritious food available to the victims and volunteers, contributors built their first tent in Hoboken, New Jersey from which they’ve distributed hot soup, Bread, Apple and bottle water to over  people. Since many areas are without electricity and power, hot soup was welcomed from all residences and also they have said “Thank you and God Bless you” The hard work displayed by all the volunteers will continue for days as they attempt to improve the living conditions for the hurricane victims.
