BENEFITING: WE ARE TEAM JERSEY INC
I have decided that I would love to run my Superhero Half Marathon for some Superheroes of my own- We Are Team Jersey.
I've worked with We Are Team Jersey since November 2012. The organization was started by one woman and a few friends who wanted to make a difference and help their neighbors. Thanks to Facebook friends, it grew to an army of 2900 people.
We Are Team Jersey helps families affected by Superstorm Sandy DIRECTLY with NO red tape. I have personally witnessed (and sometimes helped!) them gut and rebuild homes. They started out just taking donations in the form of Home Depot & Lowe's gift cards to give directly to families to help offset rebuilding costs. They still take gift card donations, but are now OFFICIALLY a 501c3 organization and are accepting monetary donations (no matter how big or small!)
The best part of We Are Team Jersey for me is that I have seen how the money goes directly to homeowners to make a difference.
