Welcome to CARE for Sandy. CARE stands for Cherished Albums Restoration Effort. Our mission is simple: to offer FREE digital restoration services for individuals and families whose photos have been damaged by October 2012's devastating hurricane.
Why? Because whereas cars, homes and jobs are replaceable, images of mom & dad’s honeymoon, baby’s first steps and great great grandpa’s sole surviving portrait are priceless. Photos contain deep-rooted significance. Photos preserve stories! Photos foster soul and spirit.
View our first 500 meticulously restored treasures, browse our 501+ Before/After album for the latest additions, volunteer to restore or visit our "CARE Package" page if you'd like to print, frame and ship a beautiful restored photo for a deserving family.
IMPORTANT: Due to overwhelming attendance at prior events, we will not be organizing new scanning events so as to best manage the thousands of photographs we already have. Click here for alternate ways to submit damaged Sandy photos. Submissions received after 12/31/13 may be waitlisted.
THANKS to our growing corps of VOLUNTEERS and SUPPORTERS who have graciously offered to assist Sandy victims at no charge. You too can help! Like our Facebook page, tweet fellow nesters, grapevine civic council leaders or pass out CARE for Sandy flyers. P.S. We're based in Brooklyn!
