For now, enough volunteers and food This was reiterated in a press conference this morning: "Agencies that had requested new volunteers are now reporting they have sufficient numbers of volunteers to accomplish their work. Agencies that have requested in-kind donations of goods and supplies have likewise received as much material support as they can immediately manage."

It looks like there *is* still need for heavy equipment:

While some local papers are still listing a need for various supplies (nypost.com, nydailynews.com), the NY Times refers to the NYC web site.

Can some of these extra resources perhaps be directed toward the homeless or needy in NYC?

I believe they already are -- *however,* remember, you're taking people who should be helping with the WTC effort directly and diverting that resource toward dealing with the overflow.

Resources for homeless/needy should be going straight to those organizations -- so if you're in a giving mood, contact City Harvest, God's Love We Deliver, or the like.
