The charity in charge of distributing donations from the nationally televised Superstorm Sandy relief concert has been thinking small when it comes to doling out more than $50 million.

More than 160 organizations have gotten shares of the Sandy relief funds collected so far by the Robin Hood Foundation.

Many have been the type of small, grass-roots groups that were everywhere on the devastated New York and New Jersey coasts in the initial weeks after the storm.

A church in Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., got $25,000 so it could install showers and beds for volunteers. The Mennonite Disaster Service in Pennsylvania got $150,000 to dispatch home builders to New York City.

The concert was held Dec. 12 and included such stars as Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones.
