Relief and Rebuilding Efforts Continue

Hello Everyone,

Over the past few days SOFM has been visiting the local relief centers in Belmar, Manasquan, Point Pleasant and Bay Head as well as attending a meeting at Calvary Pres in Allenwood. It is so encouraging to see so many wanting to get involved, donate and serve. Below is information that we have complied and would like to share. If you have any questions please let me know.

1. All relief centers are looking for cleaning supplies: (bleach, lysol, detergents, rubber kitchen gloves, buckets, mops, white masks, etc.)

– Other direct relief centers are:
– Point Pleasant: Address: 733 Albert E Clifton Ave., PP / contact: 732-232-0157
– Bay Head: Address: Bridge & West Lake Aves., Bay Head / contact: St. Pauls Methodist Church 732-892-5926
– Manasquan: Address: 47-51 South St, Manasquan / contact: 732-223-4649 Pastor Joe
– Manasquan: Address: 16 Virgina Ave., Manasquan / contact: Sandy Relief Hotline 219-921-4931
– Belmar: Contact SOFM 908-419-5844

2. Another need are gift cards,in any amount (both for rebuilding and stocking homes with needed items).
– Suggested stores for rebuilding: Lowes & Home Depot
– Suggested stores for home items: Walmart, Target, K-Mart, Kohls, Foodtown, A&P, Shoprite

3. We are also putting together “Room in a tote”
– Buy a plastic tote with lid
– Pick a room [example: kitchen]
– Fill with place setting for a family of 4; dishes, cups, bowls and glasses / a couple of pots & pans / serving bowls / utensils [you can even throw a gift card in too!]
– Mark the tote “Kitchen” and your done

Many families lost most of their rooms so be creative: bathroom, child’s room, parent’s room, baby room; can all use items for families to move back in with.

4. Bay Head Relief center (St. Paul’s Methodist) is in need of volunteers to help serve and make food.

– If you are interested in helping at St. Paul’s Methodist Church you can call 732-892-5926 / Bridge & West Lake Aves., Bay Head

5. First Presbyterian Church in Manasquan, along with 1st Baptist of Manasquan, are in need of volunteers during the week to return calls and assess people’s needs. If you have some time and desire to serve call their Sandy relief Line at 219-921-4931 / 16 Virginia Ave., Manasquan

6. There is also a need for firewood,

OK, to summarize…
