Ramsey Rescue Responds to New Jersey Shore Devastation:
At this time of great need, many people in our community have been looking for a way to help those people less fortunate than us in Ramsey whose lives have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy. To address this need, the Ramsey Rescue Squad has initiated “Ramsey Cares.”
The sole purpose of Ramsey Cares is to raise funds and collect clothing donations to provide assistance to families displaced from their New Jersey Shore Communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
All funds and clothing collected will be donated directly to local charities in the New Jersey Shore area with “Boots” on the ground who are directly involved in helping families in need. As a result, we can have the biggest impact where the need is greatest.
All efforts and activities provided by the Ramsey Rescue Squad are completely voluntarily. No monies donated through Ramsey Cares will go to the Ramsey Rescue Squad.
