Peter Farwell, who is the Hurricane Sandy recovery coordinator for the church as well as a member of Ocean County’s long-term recovery committee, said the group plans to return one week every month to help the shore recover.Russ Weer, a retired teacher and volunteer with Lend a Hand, said he was on his third trip to the Jersey Shore since Sandy hit.
“I enjoy doing this and really when you do it once, you get so much out of it that you want to do it again,” Weer said, adding that this trip won’t be his last.
“I’ll be back,” he said. “I’ll be back.”
