Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty announced yesterday that the fundraising campaign that he launched two weeks ago to assist the remaining two borough families displaced by Superstorm Sandy move back into their homes by this summer has raised $50,000 of it’s $200,000 goal.
The Keefe and Sperber families sustained significant damage to their homes and have seen the last of the state and federal grant money for Sandy relief programs run out while their home repairs continue to be ongoing and unaffordable.
“The response to this effort has been amazing. Support for these two families has flooded in from all over the country. The initial donations are enough to get contractors back working on these homes and more support is coming in every day. We are building the momentum these families need to get back home by summer.” said Mayor Doherty.admin | Filed under: Belmar, Hurricane Sandy, Matt Doherty, Superstorm Sandy | Tags: Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, Home by Summer, Hurricane Sandy, Keefe family, Krista Sperber, Matt Doherty, Sperber family, Superstorm Sandy, Teresa Roberts Keefe | No Comments »
