Little Silver Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Have you been displaced by Hurricane Sandy or did your home sustain significant damage? A grassroots effort is taking shape in Little Silver to lend you a hand.

Unable to sit on the sidelines and watch their neighbors struggle following the raging wind and floods of Hurricane Sandy, a group of Little Silver residents are banding together to try to bring some relief to those displaced by the storm.

Little Silver Point Road resident Michelle Lane is helping to spearhead an effort to provide assistance to neighbors who sustained devastating property damage when the storm blew through on Monday.

She already had a list of about 20 names on Friday of families from all over town -- Lippincott, Silverside, Amelia and Winding Way for instance -- affected by the storm.

Lane posted the following on Facebook:

ALL HANDS ON DECK!! If you have extra bins, boxes, sharpie markers and masking tape please drop at my house
138 LS Point Road - NO MONEY PLEASE!! Just items to help our families box up belongings. Anyone that wants to help distribute let me know.. If you NEED these items come by and take what you need. THX EVERYONE. LS is a wonderful community!

If you need assistance, you can contact Lane at 848-218-1165 or jmca138@verizon.net.

We'll keep updating you as more details become available.
