In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, the Jersey Shore has seen a massive influx of donations and support.
Hometown Heroes has received donations from both individuals and organizations. The Robin Hood Foundation, a charitable group based in New York, has selected Hometown Heroes as the recipients of multiple grants, so that we may provide further relief and support to our neighbors in need.
We feel that it is important to assure those who support us that their donations are being put to good use locally, while also protecting the dignity and privacy of our neighbors whom we are assisting.
Of the money spent by Hometown Heroes on Superstorm Sandy relief thus far, the majority has been in the form of grocery and home improvement store gift cards, provided to local residents to assist with feeding their families and rebuilding their homes.
Below is a list of specific, need-based assistance that Hometown Heroes has provided as of October 15, 2013. We will continue to update the list so that you can donate with confidence:
