2014 New Jersey Relief Project - St. Peter's Church, Medford, N.J.

Last year’s call to mission by helping victims of Hurricane Sandy with kitchen boxes was so wildly successful that Cynthia Sosnowski from St. Peter’s Church and coordinator for the Disaster Relief Project has again reached out to the parishes in Central Pennsylvania for assistance in collecting items needed by N.J. residents finally returning to their homes.

Help the ECW in assembling office supply boxes for those who are now returning to their homes after two years of displacement. We were notified by the Diocese of New Jersey Disaster Response coordinator, there will be up to 40 new homes completed this Fall and this is the present need.
