Mrs. Christie’s Storm Charity Gives $600K Grant

Victims of Superstorm Sandy at the Jersey Shore will be getting some help navigating the daunting financial choices they have ahead of them.

The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund on Monday gave a $600,000 grant to a nonprofit group called Operation Hope. It will offer free financial counseling from trained experts in Brick Township.

The charity is run by Mary Pat Christie, the wife of New Jersey’s governor.

Mrs. Christie says she was told by leaders of hurricane relief in Florida that many storm victims had limited financial knowledge, adding she doesn’t want that to happen here.

Operation Hope will open a center in Brick later this month, and as many as five other offices elsewhere in the state in coming months.
