The Jewish service group Repair the World is offering micro-grants to encourage students to volunteer for Hurricane Sandy relief.

The grants, which will range from $1,000 to $5,000, are intended to cover expenses for volunteers willing to spend at least 200 hours helping storm victims.

“We want young Jews across North America to dedicate themselves to hands-on volunteerism where it is most needed on the ground, responding to short-, medium- and long-term needs,” said Will Berkovitz, Repair the World's interim CEO.

The grants are supported by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
