Meet Ian, Jersey Cares Disaster Volunteer

Below is a quick story about a Jersey Cares volunteer giving back during this challenging time.

Meet Ian, a Jersey Cares volunteer. He was trapped in his apartment in Hoboken for three days before walking through the flood waters to a cousin in Jersey City. He then traveled to stay with relatives who have a generator and has been volunteering for the past two days. He sorted donations in the Jersey Cares office in Newark, walked up 25 flights of stairs to help seniors in Hoboken and then loaded a van and delivered donated food and water to a children’s shelter in Paterson earlier today.

Volunteers like Ian will keep Jersey strong and help us get through this time. Thanks to all of you who are giving back – we’re overwhelmed by your generosity.
