As I am sure you have all seen on the news and through the lens of your television screen, the beautiful Jersey Shore has been completely devastated by hurricane Sandy. As you are reading this, Thousands of homes are gone, over 2 million families have been in the dark without power, and we need your help now more than ever!
Over the past three months the Jersey Shore Dream Center and our team of volunteer’s have been tirelessly distributing supplies all over Monmouth and Ocean County, including Belmar, Asbury Park, Neptune, and Point Pleasant Beach. We have given out 100’s of coat’s, cleaning supplies, paper products, toiletries, blankets, baby supplies, and have also assisted in reconstruction efforts. Thanks to all of you and your donations we were able to reaches hundred & hundreds of hurricane victims. To see the smiles and even the tears on the faces of these broken families, to see them shivering from the lack of electricity completely broke my heart, but because of the amazing generosity of you and the Love of Jesus we were able to make a difference. “But the fight continues!”
Currently, there is a lot of support coming from the government and the Red Cross which is wonderful, but that will only last a little while longer. And as the winter months soon approach and families are still without shelter and feeling the sever after effect’s from this devastating storm, that is when these families will need our help the most.
We, The Jersey Shore Dream Center, have the volunteer’s to reach these hurting men, women, and children right now, but we are still in desperate need of the following resources.
Below are the item’s we need the most:
- Cleaning Supplies
- Trash Bags
- Dry Foods (Soups, cereals, mac & cheese, crackers, & any other non-perishable dry foods)
- Toilet paper & towels
One of my favorite scriptures in Proverbs 17:17 say’s, “A friend loves at all times and a brother, sister is born to help in time of need.”
We are certainly in that time of need right now, and you can make a difference. You can bring hope to a families that feels like they have lost all hope. You can be that brother or sister who is born for adversity and can stand in the gap for someone who isn’t able.
I pray the Lord will lead you to help in some capacity or another. Please click on the below click to donate directly to the Jersey Shore Dream Center Hurricane relief fund. Where 100% of you donation will go directly to the victims in the Jersey Shore.
