Almost nine months after Superstorm Sandy, many Jersey Shore towns hard-hit by the hurricane have rebuilt their boardwalks and reopened their businesses, but thousands of Garden State families that suffered flood damage in their homes are still living like nomads.
This summer, 94.3 The Point and Irwin Cars in Freehold are teaming up to "Pay It Forward." We're visiting local non-profits and charities to spread the good word and lend a helping hand. Recently, we were on sand in Point Pleasant Beach to volunteer at Sandy Castle.
While more than 95 percent of Sandy-related insurance claims in New Jersey have been settled and paid, thousands of homeowners have not started rebuilding yet for a variety of reasons, but a new program will offer many of them assistance.
