LONG BEACH - Volunteers are trying to help residents in Long Beach recover from Sandy's devastation.

Volunteers from NYC More2012, a group of runners who have volunteered to help in the relief efforts after the New York Marathon was canceled, are going door-to-door to help the Long Beach Police Department keep track of residents staying in their homes.

Volunteers from Humanity First are helping to restore homes that were badly damaged in the storm. One of the organization's missions is to restore disaster communities.

Other volunteers have gathered at the Long Beach Ice Arena, where donations have been pouring in.

Even though many people have shown up to offer their services at the arena, organizers say they still more people to help volunteer. If you're able to volunteer in Long Beach, head down to the Long Beach Ice Arena before 5 p.m. any day.
