Disaster Response and Recovery Volunteers Needed for Greenbriar

GNJ is working with Jersey Shore United to help rebuild homes in Ocean County that were flooded in August of 2018.  WE need volunteer teams to help the rebuilding.  Contact Disaster Response Coordinator Tom’Hearn to organize a work team this fall.

UMCOR has approved a $100,000 grant to GNJ for assisting low income seniors in the Greenbriar housing development in Brick, Ocean County, for the repair and winterization of their homes following heavy flooding in 2018. Many homes were flooded during the August 11-13, 2018 rainstorm which dropped more than 8 inches of rain and left more than 100 houses uninhabitable. UMCOR grants target crisis areas and basic needs, reaching out to vulnerable people throughout the world.
