Olivia Wilde - Olivia Wilde Calls For Food Donations To Aid Sandy Relief Effort

Actress Olivia Wilde has called on fans to donate food and funds to keep non-profit organisations running as volunteers work tirelessly to help feed the victims of Hurricane Sandy as another storm hits America's East Coast.

The Tron: Legacy star's older sister, civil rights attorney Chloe Cockburn, has been helping to raise the profile of the newly-renamed Occupy Sandy group, which has set up camp across New York to provide hot meals for the needy, and the food drive received a much-needed boost from Wilde on Tuesday (06Nov12) when she reached out to her Twitter.com followers and asked them to get involved.

After Cockburn tweeted about volunteers running out of food at Brooklyn's St. Jacobi Lutheran Church, the actress wrote, "Help! Hurricane victims need grub. You can buy food on http://FreshDirect.com and have it delivered to Jacoby (sic) Church, 5406 4th ave., Brooklyn".

The call to action worked as locals offered what they could to the cause, allowing Occupy Sandy activists to keep cooking meals to deliver to residents in the hardest hit areas, while fans from all over the U.S. arranged grocery deliveries for the church.

Wilde still had Sandy victims on her mind on Wednesday (07Nov12) as a new storm hit, and she heaped praise on the public for its generosity as charity donations to the American Red Cross continued to pour in.

She tweets, "Sending warm thoughts to all Sandy victims still without effing power in a freezing snow storm... So great that people have been so generous with Red Cross. I hope that money will go to medical assistance in low income communities today!"
