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. Visit our album pages here.
4/15/13 UPDATE: Due to an overwhelming number of submissions we will not be organizing additional scanning events until late summer or early fall so as to best manage the THOUSANDS of photographs, families and volunteers we already have. Click here for alternate ways to submit damaged Sandy photos. Possible (but not guaranteed) future scanning event locations are listed here.
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!
