We walked in sunshine on Oct. 21st for our 32nd Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk. 10 Days later we experienced rain, extreme winds, flooding and destruction along our Jersey Shore. Our efforts to assist our local neighbors with food and the funds from our CROP Hunger Walk really make a difference. Especially when something unexpected happens like Hurricane Sandy.
Church World Service continues its disaster relief efforts here in New Jersey where peoples lives have been so severely affected by the recent storm. The Community Food Bank has received supplies from CWS and is serving as a relief and emergency distribution center.
As we write this it is snowing here in Monmouth County and people already scrambling to recover from Sandy are bracing for a cold night. Church World Service Blankets and Kits Program helps people in efforts to recover and clean up. Your church or school group can put together kits to send to areas in need. People are in need of everything from blankets, to clean up buckets, hygiene kits, baby kits, school kits etc.
Church World Service is ready to act quickly to respond to disasters in the United States and around the world. Video on CWS response.
