The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and Jersey Cares are looking for 5,000 volunteers to participate in “meaningful service projects” as part of clean-up and rebuilding efforts in Atlantic, Bergen, Monmouth and Ocean counties on Saturday, October 26 and Tuesday, October 29.

Porjects will range from beach clean-up and fence installation to home repairs and rebuilding.  Volunteers age 5 and up are welcome and  can sign up as individuals or as teams of 5 or more. Many projects will have age limitations or not be be “family friendly.”

Each day will have two shifts from 9  a.m. – 12 noon and 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Registration will begin on Monday at the Jersey Cares website.

“We hope many will join us to continue the spirit of compassion and service that united all of us one-year ago,” said first lady Mary Pat Chrisie. “The Garden State has made great strides to rebuild, but there are many in need of a helping hand and this effort seeks to provide that as we remember Hurricane Sandy and look toward the future.”

The stations of Townsquare Media will also mark the first anniversary with Light Up New Jersey on Tuesday, October 29 with listeners invited to shine flashlights in a “moment of light” to recognize what happened and look towards the future at locations throughout New Jersey.
