New York and New Jersey has been hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, and as the relief efforts continue to clean up the damage and restore power to those in need New York Jets and New York Giants fans can do their part by partaking in a gameday tradition: tailgating. Tailgate 4 the Tri-State is hoping to provide support to those who need it by benefiting the efforts of the Red Cross in the post-Sandy cleanup.

Those looking to participate can contribute in a few ways:

"1-Many tailgating groups charge a fee to be able to partake in their tailgate.  We ask if these tailgate groups could donate a portion of those fees towards the Tailgate 4 The Tri-State effort.

2-A group could also make one lump sum donation from everyone in that tailgate as well.

3-The CELEBRITY APPRENTICE donation.  This is for very few willing to make the kind of donation that speaks volumes."

The Jets group already has Fireman Ed on board and support for the cause is steadily growing. Make sure to check out Tailgate 4 the Tri-State on Facebook!
