N.J. still struggling after Sandy

While Barrington and most neighboring communities experienced relatively minor disturbances due to Hurricane Sandy, much of the rest of New Jersey still is reeling.

  • North Jersey communities such as Hoboken are asking for help, as seen in this post on their Facebook page:

“Have a food truck? Come to Hoboken and help us feed our community.
Reminder: tap water is safe. PSEG power estimate: full restoration 6-9 days. Volunteers meet at city hall at 9am. Non perishable food, blankets, coats donations needed to city hall or high school. Don’t drive unless absolutely needed. Statewide gas shortage. Emergency Operations Center: 201-239-6644. Shelters open at Wallace School, Sts Peter and Paul and St Matthews.”

HOW TO HELP

  • Donate via Text Message: Text 90999 on your phone to donate $10 to the American Red Cross which helps fund relief efforts to all natural disasters.
  • Visit the Hurricane Sandy Support Page on Facebook.
  • Volunteer by calling the state hotline.
