Recovery Along the River Foundation, Inc. of Neptune said $500 American Express gift cards were dispensed to 85 Shark River Hills residents and property owners over the holiday weekend.
The cards were distributed in cooperation with the Shark River Hills First Aid Squad.
The $42,500 was generated through River Concert 2013 which was held on June 1 at Riverside Park. Both the Foundation and First Aid Squad have supported the residents impacted by Super Storm Sandy and have hopes that all displaced residents will return to their homes damaged during the storm. Foundation members said additional funds will be dispensed by the Foundation in the future to those residents and property owners found to be in need of further assistance.
