Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts in Cape May

3 Nov

We all know that Cape May was miraculously spared from the devastation visited on other areas by Hurricane Sandy; now we’re letting you know just a little bit about what Cape May is doing to help those in crisis. The Whale’s Tale is collecting donations of non-perishable food donations, toiletries and diapers, as well as monetary donations to the Red Cross, which they are matching. While you’re on the mall, head over to Henry’s Jewelry to get started on holiday shopping; Henry’s, along with several other mall merchants, we hear, will be donating 10% of their profits for the next 30 days to hurricane relief efforts and the South Jersey Food Bank. Speaking of which, a visit to Elizabeth Degener’s bread stand on Sunset Boulevard is always a great idea – and today and tomorrow, 50% of all her bread sale proceeds will go to the Food Bank. Finally, make sure you swing by Flying Fish to pick up your commemorative Sandy survival or Dan Skeldon Fan Club tee – $5 from each sale goes to the Food Bank. (Plus, you always look cool in a Flying Fish tee, right?) And if you’re off the island, the group Helping Victims of Hurricane Sandy is setting up shop at the Villas Fire Hall today from 12-5, collecting items for victims as close to home as Egg Harbor Township. You’ve always thought Cape May is special – now you know.
