Keansburg, NJ – Officials in Keansburg, New Jersey held a media conference on October 28 to launch a 29-hour home rebuild in Keansburg to commemorate the second anniversary Superstorm Sandy and to raise awareness of the patience, strength and resiliency of the families that are still facing challenges.
Through an ongoing partnership between St. Bernard Project (SBP) and Farmers Insurance, volunteers will work 29 straight hours – from Tuesday October 28 to Wednesday, October 29 – to help rebuild the damaged home of Hilton Dantas, a Keansburg resident.
“When Hurricane Sandy hit, we all came together to meet the challenges. Today we continue that commitment with fortitude,” said Keansburg Mayor Thomas Foley. “We are incredibly thankful for the St. Bernard Project and Farmers Insurance for recognizing our hard working community with their support.”
To date, St. Bernard Project and their partners have rebuilt over 800 homes nationwide. The Project recruits and trains volunteers, provides skilled site managers and health services, and coordinates fundraising.
