NEW YORK (AP) -- It will be a subdued Thanksgiving for families hit hard by Superstorm Sandy.

Many plan to gather with friends and strangers alike, seeking to celebrate the people and things that were spared when so much was lost. But they will not be left to fend for themselves.

Restaurants are donating meals, strangers and churches are opening their doors, and people from across the nation have sent an outpouring of donations for storm victims who aren't able to roast their own turkey this year.

Five-thousand bleacher seats along the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade route have been set aside for families affected by Superstorm Sandy.

The city has also set up dozens of food distribution sites and food trucks in the Rockaways, Coney Island and other areas hit hard by the storm.
