Lend A Hand Celebrates Accomplishments since Super Storm Sandy

7904b376-6c4e-4988-8268-7221429f5213This past Wednesday, Lend A Hand hosted a dinner at our church to celebrate all the work that has been accomplished since Superstorm Sandy. A great number of PPPC volunteers were in attendance. This past week was Lend A Hand’s 30th work team to come to the Jersey Shore. All but one of those groups have stayed in our Volunteer Village. Lend A Hand has only one more team scheduled to come to PPPC – a group of Elizabethtown College students – in early October. 46b96da5-f576-4469-9d76-1434d7825eed
