Pointer to clearinghouse for NY IT volunteers?

It has been mentioned on this list and others that there is a
requirement for volunteers in NYC to help bring things back on line
from a network and machine perspective.
I'll put my money where my mouth is and say that I'll be available in
NYC on Monday at 06:00. What I have not been able to determine is
how I find a company that needs what I can do. Is there a
clearinghouse for volunteer IP-networking or UNIX systems staff? The
Red Cross seems like an unusual place to go for figuring out what
firms need what help... they seem to me to be a place to go to assist
people, not companies. I'm not an EMT, a social worker, or a ditch
digger, so I'll stick with helping with what I know how to do.
Do any of you who are closer to the question know where a person
should report to get an assignment, and what data I should furnish to
make the process easier?
Sorry for the almost-non-operational content here - I'm hoping
someone can reply to the list with a pointer to a location that will
lend some operational content to this recently high noise/low signal
Otherwise, I'll wear a sign around my neck with my resume on it that
says "FREE NETWORKING GEEK" on Monday AM. Yes, I'm serious. :)
