Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO, Volunteers For Sandy Relief In The Rockaways And Staten Island (PHOTO)

Superstorm Sandy's damage has inspired many public figures, including Lady Gaga and Rihanna, to pitch in and help victims in New York and New Jersey.

On Saturday, two badly hit neighborhoods in New York City received a visit from another big name, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, who spent his afternoon cleaning up in the Rockaways and packing food for displaced residents in Staten Island:

The photo of Blankfein-- the head of a company Matt Taibbi famous called the "great vampire squid" of Wall Street-- is probably startling to many. The CEO, after all, traded his business suit for a regular working man's t-shirt and jeans.

One Twitter user wondered if Blankfein may have been the subject of a Christmas Carol-like intervention:

Goldman Sachs-- long condemned for their role in the housing crisis and much maligned by the likes of Occupy Wall Street-- experienced some more bad publicity when Superstorm Sandy hit.

The company's headquarters in Lower Manhattan-- thanks to their extensive disaster preparations-- was one of the very, very few building to keep power during the blackout caused by the storm.

Goldman Sachs made a $10 million donation towards hurricane relief.
