For more details about this event, or to volunteer to help with it, contact
Superstorm Sandy Volunteer Opportunities 
For anyone interested in volunteering some time to help Superstorm Sandy victims: there is still a huge need. The shore continues to deal with debris like fallen trees and power lines, gas shortages and limited operation of food stores due to lack of power. Many shore residents have lost their jobs and still can't get back into their homes. 
If you would like to help, Cheryl Mulliken will be coordinating volunteers with COA for a relief project being run by the Church of Visitation in Brick Township. Volunteers are needed for many different jobs including signing families in, boxing up supplies and delivering them as needed. The hours of operation are any time between 8:00 am - 6:00 pm (there is no minimum or maximum hours required) on any day from Monday through Saturday for the next six weeks only. After that, supplies will be centralized in a warehouse located in Lakewood and volunteers will be needed for years to come. 
Cheryl will be volunteering every other Tuesday for the next six weeks and any additional days that she is not scheduled to work. If you would like to join her, please contact her at or 609-689-4889To learn more about the Church of Visitation's project, click here.
