Over the past month, we have faced serious challenges after Hurricane Sandy brought flooding, power outages and other serious issues to our coastline. This event negatively impacted thousands of people living along the shore in our state and throughout the northeast region. While life is returning to normal, many communities are just beginning the recovery process and much remains to be done.
Thanksgiving week is the opportunity to step back and reflect upon what we are thankful for, whether it is our family, a job, friends or something else. It is also a time to take the opportunity to give back to those who need our help the most. So, this week, I would like to share important information to help guide those who have suffered damage as a result of Hurricane Sandy through the recovery period and how you can help others as well.
