PHOTOS: Volunteers, Donations Help Local Residents Move on From Sandy

A busy weekend as the township moves on from punishing storm

For the first time since Hurricane Sandy hit last week the number of outages in Howell reported to JCP&L was under five digits on Sunday night. With 6,775 outages reported the township continued to clean up from the storm thanks in large part to the work of its residents and their commitment to volunteering. 

Hundreds of volunteers have turned out over the past week doing everything from going door to door in the senior citizen communities to clearing brush around the town. 

On Sunday afternoon the Howell PAL hosted an event at the old Southard School where they not only helped feed residents who have been without power but also collect items for those in need around the area.

Sgt. Chris Hill of the PAL and the Howell Police Department said they collected an impressive four truckloads of materials that were brought to the bayshore. They also sent a contingent to Toms River to help some families clean their bayfront properties.

Hey Adam, I missed seeing you there taking pictures. I snapped a few and posted on my website as well at www.taxpayerwaste.com We also made 100+ sandwiches and soup and brought up to Keansburg....tge drive there was easy, but just to get across 36all to the shelter school was another hour. But the food is needed as they are feeding up to 750750 per meal at Bolger school.
