See how these generous stars and media companies are helping those in need left hurting after Hurricane Sandy right here:

  • Snooki 3 of 9
    Snooki's home in New Jersey lost power due to Hurricane Sandy, she has since escaped to her mother's house in New York that does have electricity. But before she left she donated a whole bunch of clothing to those in need tweeting, "I'm coming with clothes to keep warm!!!" She gave over a dozen bags of clothes including "a lot of sweat pants, zip ups and track suits of mine," she said. But the recipients may do better by taking the items, putting them on eBay and making some quick cash for food and other necessities.
