We are super-excited and proud to announce our partnership with Restore the Shore, Hometown Heroes and 94.3 The Point to bring you RESTORE THE SHORE WEEKEND, taking place Saturday and Sunday, March 23d & 24th in all 3 of our stores. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for local non-profit Hometown Heroes for their Sandy relief efforts – are you in?
We will be donating a percentage of our weekend sales from all 3 stores – 2 days, 3 stores – to Hometown Heroes and 100% of that will go to helping local people affected by Sandy. But we can’t do it and reach the goal without you. We invite you to stop in, shop up and stock up, knowing that your participation will go towards helping the families in our own communities, our backyards, local people we all know who have lost their homes and have had to relocate, have been struggling trying to buy a new furnace and hot water heater, drywall, schoolbooks, you name it – all due to that fateful day when Superstorm Sandy made landfall and changed lives forever.
We urge you to not only come in for the usual, but to take the opportunity to stock up on frozen and non-perishables, things you know will get used and know that your actions will directly help those around us.
We’ll have some fun, too! the crew from 94.3 The Point radio station will be in Shrewsbury on Saturday, 3/23 and in Ocean on Sunday, both from 11-1 giving out prizes, hosting games and giveaways. We’ll also be giving away limited edition Restore the Shore reusable bags and if you spend over $50, you’ll get a raffle ticket to win a family pack of beach badges to the Jersey Shore (which beaches to choose from will be determined closer to the season). There will be huge sales and lots of food sampling and demos on our days with the Point; plus, did we mention the Juice Bar official Restore the Shore drink for the weekend? Follow our Facebook for a chance to name it!
Together, we can make a difference in a lot of lives, so come out on March 23rd & 24th and let’s DO IT!
A little more about our charities: Restore the Shore is the brainchild of a group of people from Townsquare Media of New Jersey to help local residents recover from the devastation of Superstorm Sandy by creating awareness, gathering donations and raising funds for the relief effort at the Jersey Shore.
They’ve partnered with Hometown Heroes, a non-profit based in Toms River, who specialize in providing need-based charitable assistance to local residents. So far, they’ve raised thousands of dollars – of which 100% goes direcly to helping to help people affected by Sandy -help for everything from bills to replacement furniture, new furnaces to security deposits on temporary housing or new homes. 100% of all proceeds and all donations go directly to helping residents of the Jersey Shore who we heavily damaged by Sandy.
