Q 1:   What is the approximate dollar amount of donations and pledges that
          your organization has received to date in response to Hurricane Sandy?

A 1:    $750,000

Q 2:   Will these funds be used solely for Hurricane Sandy relief? If not,
          approximately what portion will be used for Hurricane Sandy relief and
          what other purposes will funds be used for?

A 2:    For Hurricane Sandy relief and administration of the program

Q 3:   Approximately how much has your organization spent to date on Hurricane
          Sandy relief?

A 3:    Approximately $100,000

Q 4:   What services has your organization provided to those affected by Hurricane
          Sandy? What populations or geographical areas are being served by your
          organization in response to Hurricane Sandy? What services does it expect to
          provide in the future?

A 4:    To date, All Hands Volunteers has provided free muck, gut, and debris removal services
          to over 150 families through the in field management and coordination of over 1200
          volunteers. The estimated value of this service is roughly $225,000. We have provided
          these free services to affected communities on Staten Island, Long Beach, Island Park,
          and Freeport, NY. Looking ahead, All Hands will continue to provide muck and gut
          services on an as needed basis and have begun to ramp up a mold treatment program that
          will also be provided free of charge to homeowners in the same geographic areas and
          beyond as resources permit.

Q 5:   Has your organization provided funding to other organizations for Hurricane
          Sandy relief efforts? If so, which organizations have received those funds
          and what is the approximate dollar amount provided to them? How does
          your organization determine the need for funding?

A 5:    All Hands Volunteers has not provided funding to other organizations.

Q 6:   Has your organization provided, or does it intend to provide, direct financial
          assistance to individuals, families or businesses for Hurricane Sandy relief?
          If so, what is the approximate dollar amount that your organization
          has provided to date and approximately how much direct financial assistance
          does it expect to provide in the future? How does your organization
          determine the need for assistance?

A 6:    All Hands Volunteers has not and does not intend to provide direct financial
          assistance to individuals, families, or businesses for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Q 7:   Does your organization have a plan in place on how to use any surplus funds
          not spent for Hurricane Sandy relief? If so, please describe that plan.

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.
