Donations for Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts in New Jersey
Supplies were taken to Lacey United Methodist Church (LUMC) in Ocean County. They are currently housing over 200 people and serving as a distribution point serving thousands of residents from Barnegat to Brick Township. If you would like to volunteer, please call 609-693-5222. They need volunteers to cook or deliver meals (3 daily), sort & deliver supplies, and help clean out damaged homes. Please visit their Facebook page for daily updates https://www.facebook.com/pages/LUMC-Lacey-United-Methodist-Church/140653852637462
UPDATE 11-13-12: LMUC cannot accept additional supplies at this time, there’s just not enough room for storage. Thank you to everyone who donated!
You can still make a monetary donation at any of our cash registers which will go directly to LUMC to help residents who lost their homes in the storm. Or send a check to the address below made out to LUMC Sandy Relief Efforts.
