Niederhoffer's November 4 post, as reported by Bloomberg, said he and an estimated 75 volunteers purchased and delivered food and supplies including water, 1,200 cans of corn, hundreds of hats,1,000 lighters, baby formula, diapers, wipes, glasses, coffee and toiletries to people in areas of New York affected by the storm.

a battery powered LED lantern,” which legal aid lawyers used to help people fill
out FEMA forms in the dark.”
