After Hurricane Sandy struck our area, teachers and volunteers from the Toms River Regional Schools, under the direction of Tammi Millar, started the People’s Pantry. The organization takes donations for displaced area residents needing food and supplies.

The North Dover Elementary School students were asked by their PTO to bring in certain items to donate to the People’s Pantry. Mayor Tom Kelaher joined Mrs. Thomas’s second grade class to thank them for their support. Kelaher said, “I continue to be so impressed by the spirit and generosity that exists here in town.”

Mayor Kelaher spoke to the class about Hurricane Sandy, and the second-graders shared their stories about friends and family members who were impacted by the storm. The students from North Dover Elementary School donated supplies ranging from paper towels to First Aid Kits.
