To Lighthouse Alliance and Operation Blessing,
I want to say thank you for helping me when it was most needed.
I live up North and my parents home was flooded in Little Egg Harbor
due to Hurricane Sandy. With having my own issues up north my
family had to be divided. I stayed and helped my parents to the best

couldn't get everything done on my own. (My parents are elderly and
my dad’s health isn't good).
I finally had to ask for help which was hard, as I'm always on the giving

I was able to begin the drying process. You removed things, packed
things, pulled down sheetrock, removed...

Neighboring NJ churches like Bayside Chapel in Barnegat, Living Water Christian Center in Mystic Island, Lighthouse Church in Cape May and volunteers from the Mystic Island Fire Department and local residents have come to lend a hand.
