From a Long Beach resident: For a community who always comes together to help others, it is now time for Long Beach to ask for help. Over 30,000 residents have been displaced from their homes due to Hurricane Sandy. Power, water, and sewer services are still being worked on and have yet to be restored. It can be weeks before we see that. Several Nursing homes, the Long Beach Medical Center, and 5 out of the 7 schools in town were damaged, along with mostly all businesses and banks and the post office. Our beautiful 2.1 mile long boardwalk is a distant memory as it floats away in the Atlantic Ocean. We have been declared a Presidential Disaster Area by Barack Obama. The National Guard with local and state agencies have been here to help, along with FEMA and the Red Cross. We have opened our arms and hearts to so many through the years, and now we are asking for additional help to get back our CITY BY THE SEA. The Long Beach community will embrace anyone and anything with open arms and open hearts. We will continually celebrate the gift of community and giving for as long as this barrier island survives.

Please continue to bring these items to the church or school. They will be taken directly to Long Beach and other identified local areas for those with immediate need:

Baby Supplies, Baby Formula and Non-Perishable Food, Gluten-Free Products, Dog and Cat Food, Manual Can Openers.
