Thank you all so so much, our truck is filled, we are no longer seeking donations for New Jersey, however we can bring them to a local charity. Thank you so much, each one of you made this possible, we filled 22pallets of goods. This community is generous, kind, strong, and beautiful, some lost a lot and still wanted to give to strangers, who had even less. Thank you for all the support, Keansburg is going to be schocked when this truck rolls up Wednesday! Thank you, the two smallest states do have the biggest hearts!
