When given the task of their Senior Service Learning Project, four Colts Neck High School students went above and beyond by creating ‘Project Save Our Shore’. Their mission in continuing Hurricane Sandy relief efforts through volunteerism and fundraising has proven very successful. In conjunction with Jersey Cares, they’ve repaired schools that were flooded and damaged due to the storm, planted dune grass which helps stabilize beach dunes against future storms, and cleared debris and garbage off beaches that were a mess after Sandy.
Up next on their agenda: Jersey Cares Day! Because Jersey Cares Day features many Sandy-related projects along the Jersey Shore, the Colts Neck foursome are a perfect fit for one of the many teams signed up to rebuild communities along the coastline. Project Save Our Shore’s revitalization and fundraising efforts encompass exactly what Jersey Cares Day is all about: “A Brand New Jersey”. Although it’s been roughly a year and half since Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, Project Save Our Shore understands that the work to revitalize the state is far from over, and they need your help! If you’d like to join their aide in rebuilding New Jersey on May 3rd for Jersey Cares Day, you can visit our website, www.jerseycaresday.org, to sign up!
