WBVFD AIDS IN HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF

     

Saturday, November 10, 2012   On November 3, 2012 Anne Arundel County Breaking News and Events (AACoBNE) joined forces with the Woodland Beach Volunteer Fire Department (WBVFD) to aid in the support efforts and disaster relief of tropical storm Sandy. Through many social media outlets we were able to gather a large collection of everyday common use items from clothing, toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant, first aid kits, canned goods, snacks, drinks, hats, gloves, and scarfs all the way to blankets and space heaters. These donations were accepted from Sunday, November 4th through Friday, November 9, 2012 at the Woodland Beach Vol. Fire Department in Edgewater, Md. and Secure Solutions Lock and Key in Pasadena, Md. Due to the overwhelming response from our community we were able to make two substantial donations to the disaster areas in New Jersey. On Saturday, the 10th of November 2012 the members of WBVFD accompanied by the Rivera family, formerly of Toms River, New Jersey traveled to our first drop off location, the New Jersey Regional Center in Manahawkin, NJ. Upon our arrival at the Regional Center, Mayor John Spodofora greeted us with a tour of the facility, relief efforts and a guided tour of Long Beach Island. Mayor Spodofora then accompanied us to our second drop off location at the High Point Volunteer Fire Company in Harvey Cedars, NJ where he assisted us in unloading donations to the first responders.

 

The Woodland Beach Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank Mayor Spodofora, the New Jersey Regional Center and the members of High Point Volunteer Fire Company for their hospitality during our recent trip. We also wish them the very best in the coming weeks and months as they rebuild their community to even bigger and better than it ever was.

 

We would also like to thank our community and the businesses throughout all of Anne Arundel County, Md for their donations. You all made this not only a huge success helping others but also an experience we will not soon forget.
