Superstorm Sandy was one of the worst natural disasters ever to hit the Diocese of Brooklyn and right after the winds died down, people across the city and country rallied to help the victims.
That included Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens, which jumped into action even before the storm hit.
After the storm the charity set up recovery sites where food, water, clothes, and cleaning supplies were handed out.
And Catholic Charities has also been there for the long term. Under the leadership of Bishop Emeritus Nicholas DiMarzio, a $2 million Hurricane Sandy Relief and Recovery Fund was created.
Bishop DiMarzio joins Currents News to talk more about the response after the storm.
