Some of the biggest names in rock 'n' roll were on the bill for the nationally televised "12-12-12" concert benefiting victims of Hurricane Sandy.

But the charity in charge of distributing donations has been thinking small when it comes to doling out the more than $50 million raised by Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones and others.

More than 160 organizations and counting have received shares of the Sandy relief funds collected so far by the Robin Hood Foundation, and many have been the type of small, grass-roots groups that seemed to be everywhere on the devastated New York and New Jersey coastlines in the initial weeks after the storm.

The list of grant recipients includes places like the Point Pleasant Presbyterian church, which got $25,000 so it could install showers and beds for the stream of volunteers it has been deploying to help rebuild damaged homes.

Numerous food pantries received grants to help serve thousands of hot meals. Another group got $25,000 for making storage space available to families that need a temporary place to put salvaged possessions.
