As Memorial Day weekend is upon us, we are reminded that the Jersey shore has made great progress, but we are also reminded that there is a ton of work ahead.

One of the great ways you can help our many neighbors who are still trying to recover from Sandy is to make a donation to Hometown Heroes. They have been working tirelessly to help Restore the Shore.

There is a very simple way for you to make a big difference. You can text a donation to Hometown Heroes. Simply text "USA Hero" to 71441. You will receive a text with a link and be able to donate as much as you'd like.

Or you can always visit the Hometown Heroes website, whether you would like to help or if you need assistance.
