The Rockaway Renegades are an all volunteer based, direct action group committed to the cleanup and relief effort currently underway in the Rockaways following the devastation left behind by Hurricane Sandy.


Because we are all volunteer and direct action it means we have NO OVERHEAD.  We pass those savings on to Saving.


During the weekend of November 3 4, we organized a large donation site in Greenpoint and two days of relief in Rockaway.  We were on the ground there distributing warm clothing, water, batteries, and supplies.  We also prepared hot meals to distribute to a community of people who have not had heat or power since the storm.  


Our efforts that weekend culminated on Sunday November 4th, when we caravanned down to the Far Rockaways with 2 trucks, 2 SUVs, and 6 cars full of food, volunteers, clothing, and supplies. Witnessing the intense need of the community there- we were inspired to do more - and with your generous donation we intend to do exactly that.


Our immediate plan is to resume our relief effort on Saturday November 11 and Sunday November 12.  We will be caravanning down - this time with at least 3 passenger vans full of volunteers and supplies.  We are in the process of organizing additional drivers and volunteers in addition to the vans.


Once there - we will coordinate with leaders in the community to distribute much needed food and supplies while also, for the first time, contributing to the massive clean up effort that is underway there.

The community isn't expected to have heat or power for another 6 - 10 days and the need there is beyond belief.


Your generous donation will allow us to make a real impact in a community that's been rocked by a hurricane.


STAY TUNED FOR MORE FROM US - We will be updating this as we continue to do more.  And "LIKE" us on FACEBOOK - Rockaway Renegades
