Rowan Relief for Hurricane Sandy
Between Oct. 29 and 30, 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated the New Jersey coastline and much of North Jersey, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without electricity, and in worst-case scenarios, with damaged or destroyed homes and businesses. In some areas, residents may not be able to return to their homes for up to six months.
New Jersey is in trouble and Rowan University is here to help.
Through Rowan Relief, we stand ready to clean up and rebuild New Jersey towns; organize fundraisers and collect donations; and provide information on statewide relief efforts and emergency resources.
But our work won’t stop here. While efforts are required immediately after a disaster, volunteers and donations are still needed months and years later. Rowan Relief will continue to update and offer services such as day-long projects, alternative spring break trips and summer service projects to the Jersey shore. Please check the Relief Efforts webpage for new events.
If you know of a volunteer opportunity or someone in need, please contact RowanRelief@rowan.edu.
