The Toms River Lions Club this week presented checks to the North Carolina Baptist Men's Organization to partially fund their rebuilding efforts in the greater Toms River area, the group said in an e-mail to Toms River Patch.

The Baptist group has been helping to rebuild homes in Seaside Heights and the local area since Sandy struck. Local residents have likely seen the North Carolina Baptist Builder trucks parked near Route 35 and Central Avenue in the borough.

The donation, representing $7,000 in grant funding, is the first installment of a total $75,000 grant received from Lions Clubs International Foundation and the NJ Lions Sandy Relief Projects.

Mel Bray, Secretary and Treasurer of the Toms River Lions Club, reviewed the completed work as part of the scope of the project grant with Tim Etheridge, Team Leader for the North Carolina Baptist Men.

Lions Clubs International Foundation has made grants totaling $463,000 for Sandy-related repairs and projects so far in New Jersey and has contributed similar amounts to efforts in New York and Connecticut.
