Point Boro Helping Other Towns

Relief station has plenty of food, clothing, firewood for other towns

The Point Borough Relief Station on Bridge Avenue has enough supplies to share with Tropical Storm Sandy victims from other towns.

Any residents or business people from any of the surrounding communities, as well as those from Point Borough, who have been impacted by Sandy, are welcome to pick up free supplies at the relief station on Bridge Avenue, just west of the Lovelandtown Bridge, on the former Tally's car dealership lot.

There is food, water, clothing, diapers, cleaning supplies, firewood and more. If you need help of any other kind, ask the police and volunteers manning the tables and they will give you referrals.

Initially, the relief station was established primarily for residents of hard-hit sections of the Borough. Horrendous flooding badly damaged many homes in certain sections, including Sunshine Harbor and Bay Head Shores, all east of Beaver Dam Road.

However, the relief station still has a lot of supplies left, so officials are putting the word out that they are happy to share with affected residents from other communities.
