Volunteers Help Out During Sandy Service Days

Volunteers Help Out During Sandy Service Day (Jersey Cares)Thousands of volunteers are working across the shore to clean up and rebuild damage still left by Sandy.The Sandy Service Days take place on Saturday October 26th and Tuesday October 29th, and will feature 83 service projects being done in Atlantic, Bergen, Hudson, Monmouth and Ocean counties to provide aid to both individuals and community organizations.

The days are a partnership by the Jersey Cares organization and the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.

“They (Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund) are helping us provide supplies for five thousand people who are going to be working and down the shore, doing the work that still needs to be done a year after Sandy.” Says Brian Dean, executive director of Jersey Cares.

Volunteers will be repairing homes, painting community facilities, removing debris along the shore, assembling “welcome home” painting kits, and rebuilding and painting playgrounds. However Dean notes there will be more than just “drywall” projects.

“In addition to the drywall projects, we will be doing fun things like building lifeguard stands in Island Beach State Park, cleaning up beaches, and helping nonprofits and schools that were affected by the storm.”

Dean adds they have many family friendly projects that children can help out on, information can be found on

On Saturday, about one hundred and fifty volunteers helped organize books that were donated to the library of the Hugh J. Boyd School in Seaside Heights.  About 200 volunteers (4 shifts of 50) will be painting and spackling the basement of the St. Rose School — which had NINE FEET of water and 800 pounds of fish swimming in it after the Hurricane.
