Although for some of us Hurricane Sandy seems like a distant & bad memory, it’s hard not to forget the horrific mess it created in Hoboken and its surrounding areas — as well as all across the tri-state area. Right now, that’s literally happening in the Houston area of Texas — but even worse. Seeing what everyone is going through in Texas is just breaking our hearts, so we’ve donated to several causes and also wanted to put together a post of ways that you can help from afar. Even if you are unable to do anything but donate a few dollars, every little bit helps. Here are the best ways to help Houston after Hurricane Harvey from Hoboken and Jersey City:
