A 7: All Hands plans on spending the funds raised for Sandy Relief in the communities
affected by Sandy. The tentative or working plan for any excess funding will be to
identify a community based organization needing funds to complete a Sandy related
project; however, it is our hope that we can scale our mold treatment program by
underwriting equipment purchases and training costs so that it can be replicated in
communities without a mold treatment solution. We will know more as our program gets
off the ground.
