South Plainfield, NJ, August 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Hurricane Sandy was the most destructive hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season and considered the second-costliest hurricane in United States history. The damage of the storm has left families with broken hearts, with broken homes, and more importantly with long-term recovery needs. It has now been nine months since the storm hit, and even though the waters have calmed down and gone away, New Jersey continues to encourage volunteers to assist with the pressing needs of affected communities. In the past couple of months, the neighborhoods that were greatly affected have had many cleanup efforts.
With the devastating wake of Hurricane Sandy, many communities have faced difficulty in cleaning up their homes and neighborhoods. There is still so much work to do at the Jersey Shore and every helping hand is a gift in order for efforts to make the difference that communities need due to getting swept by the storm.

Volunteering makes such a powerful impact. For those families that lost everything from their homes and beaches to special memories that were washed away, it was time for Shore Thing Marketing to aid those that were highly affected by Hurricane Sandy. The employees at Shore Thing Marketing will be volunteering to restore the shore on August 11, 2013. This event has been coordinated to help families in South Jersey restore their communities and rebuild lives. The employees will support local residents in various projects lead by project coordinators and AmeriCorps members who are sponsored and managed by Jersey Cares. The opportunity for Shore Thing Marketing to make a significant impact is gratifying and providing community efforts will be recognized long beyond the storm by all.
Due to needs changing frequently, the time spent restoring the shore on August 11th, 2013 will include recovery needs such as community clean up, debris removal, muck outs and home gutting, environmental restoration (rebuilding sand dunes, fencing, and planting grass), general labor tasks, and general operations. Volunteers will receive an assignment for the day when they arrive at the Hurricane Sandy Resource Center in Ocean County, NJ on the day of this event. Volunteering is not only rewarding but no matter how small an act of kindness is, it can make tremendous differences. It does not matter how insignificant the act may seem at the time, but participating in an event like such will make big differences to improve the lives of those highly affected by Hurricane Sandy. Shore Thing Marketing looks forward to be a part of an inspirational journey to restore the shore and be involved in the community.
It is important to raise awareness and funds for beach communities that are struggling to recover from the damages of the storm. The destruction of local beaches, businesses, schools, and homes all over the media up until this day is horrendous. Hurricane Sandy has permanently damaged the environment and the lives of many. Shore Thing Marketing looks forward to bring smiles to faces at the event on August 11th, 2013 and cheer up those who are still dealing with the outcome of Hurricane Sandy. It is important to be affiliated with existing non-profit organizations and researching the best ways to help disaster areas.
Recovery lasts a lot longer than the media attention. There will be volunteers needed for many months and often years after the disaster. For more information on how to participate in efforts to restore the Jersey Shore, please visit www.jerseycares.org or visit www.shorethinginc.com.
