Superfund sites were inundated and released massive amounts of toxic material; Oil, detergents, pesticides and other chemicals are washed out to sea in mass quantities; and toxic fracking water may have been released from holding ponds into streams in WV and PA.
Here are some places to help. There's the American Red Cross. Other local organizations that are great are being powered by recovers.org sites. There's Staten Island Recovers and Red Hook Recovers.

Occupy Wall Street has a great Occupy Sandy page set up listing drop-off sites around the city.
