"In speaking of help, many of your children, as well as the staff here at SMS, have been asking what else can be done to help out those who still are without power, and even homes, in New Jersey," Wolfe said in an email to the community. "Mr. Mongon and Mrs. Kirk did the research, and found that the hardest hit area of New Jersey, the shore, requires the greatest assistance. This area is certainly dear to many of us. We all vacation there, our students go their on field trips, staff and parents have homes there, and it is simply a part of the fabric of who we are as New Jerseyans."
If you would like to lend a hand by volunteering to help with donation intake anytime through next Wednesday, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with availability.
