“With the assistance of 400 National Guard troops, sites were established in public parks and playgrounds in the hardest hit areas of the city. During the course of the day, over 600,000 bottles of water and nearly 300,000 packaged meals were distributed to approximately 100,000 local residents. In addition, meals were delivered to the apartments and homes of shut-in residents in these areas.”
