Colts Neck is partnering with the borough of Union Beach, to help them recover more quickly from the ravages of Super Storm Sandy.  The effort is called Operation Provide Comfort - Union Beach.
 
The purpose of this organization is to help collect and coordinate donations of money, physical goods, and services to aid in the rebuilding effort. Colts Neck Community Church serves as our fiscal agent (as a 501c3 entity) for monetary donations; all donations are tax deductible and are transferred directly to Union Beach.
 
Please use this website as a resource for keeping track of meetings, events, and activities related to rebuilding Union Beach, as well as making a donation to Operation Provide Comfort.


Jennifer Maier, Union Beach Borough Administrator, speaking at the annual Colts Neck Business Association Luncheon:

 

Our Goal

The purpose of the effort is to develop a long term relationship between Union Beach and Colts Neck that will endure long after the storm.

Our approach is to leverage the resources of our town to help the residents of Union Beach who suffered the most devastation and to help collect and coordinate donations of money, physical goods and services to aid in the rebuilding effort.
