This is what I love about the American spirit, everyone is always willing to help out when needed.  7 months ago we went through the horrible Super Storm Sandy, which left a lot of us New Jersians displaced.  It's time to help out our neighbors in Oklahoma.

This is a way to help out...We received this on our facebook page so I thought I'd share it with you.  Please help out with what you can!

Operation Jersey Shore Santa is "Paying It Forward" by helping to collect donations for the victims of the Oklahoma tornado.

**HELPING OKLAHOMA UPDATE**
Here is a more specific list of what we are collecting to drive out to Oklahoma.
Collection will go through THIS SUNDAY so we can arrange packing the truck on Monday.
... We have also listed the current collection spots where donations can be dropped.
Thank you to everyone who has offered to be a collection point for us!
