The American Children's Society understands the immediate needs of the families affected by the hurricanes. Keeping The Light is our special response to help those children and families. Most will be without power for weeks.
Being based in New Jersey, we have felt the effects of Sandy, and ourselves been without power for 7 - 10 days. Items like solar charging stations for personal devices can help families stay connected. Even if cellular service is not restored yet, most personal devices can act like a flashlight, emergency signal and more.
