New Jersey’s post-superstorm restoration efforts get a $1,000,000 boost, in a check for that amount from Jon Bon Jovi and his band.

The rocker donated the money to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund this morning in Sayreville, his hometown. Governor Chris Christie and First Lady Mary Pat Christie, who oversees the fund, accepted the contribution in front of townsfolk and Mayor Kennedy O’Brien.

“Natural disasters spare no one,” he said in a prepared release. “But you can’t imagine the devastation, destruction and despair until Mother Nature takes aim at your hometown.”

According to fund officials, 51 grants totalling $11,000,000 have been issued thus far, with more to be announced this week.

Mary Pat Christie said that thousands of Jerseyans, many in Sayreville, still haven’t returned to their homes. “This donation will help the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund ‘fill the gap’ between the cost of repairs and other aid received by homeowners to restore or reconstruct their homes,” she said.
