Two-Hundred Christmas Trees Are Free - Right Now - To Sandy Victims.

That means all Toms River residents

Two-hundred Christmas trees are free - right now - to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The Roatary Club of Medford donated the trees that are now available - first come, first served - at Bey Lea Golf Course, said Debbi Winogracki, Toms River spokesperson.

The trees are available to any Toms River resident, she said.

"All Toms River residents were affected some way or another by the storm," she said.

Home Depot is also dispensing ornaments, and the Girl Scouts are providing homemade ornaments.

Bey Lea Golf Course is located at 1536 N. Bay Ave. in Toms River.

I am grateful for the tree, I did not lose my rental home or my car , but I live in Toms River and life has been rough for my family , we did lose power and all the food in the refrigerator. Work had no power for a little less then a week and being alone overnight at a hotel with workers from FEMA and survivors took a toll on me , a tree was the last thing on my mind . So to club that gave me a smile and a Christmas tree , I THANK YOU !
