South Jersey Cares is a new Meetup group organized by Lizette Melendez as a way to help support her brother’s family in Little Egg Harbor Township in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
“It is important for me to make this tragedy into something good,” Lizette explains on the Meetup page. “New Jerseyans and others can come together to help rebuild and restore our Jersey Shore towns and communities. Please join me to make it happen!”
By joining the Meetup group, you can get updates about volunteer opportunities, donation drives and fundraising events.
One upcoming volunteer event is helping with sorting and unloading donated items at the Salvation Army in Trenton on Saturday, Feb. 16. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Lizette at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Feb. 8.
