The Jersey shore has been a very important part of my life, and one of my favorite places to go. It was the inexpensive family vacation as a child, it was a place to go with friends as an arcade-seeking teenager, and it was a sanctuary and source of inspiration in my adult life. With the destruction that has happened due to Hurricane Sandy, the shore as I remember it, is gone…however, knowing of the restoration process has me hopeful of seeing it as it once was. It will not happen over night, nor in one season, but people will come together to lend a hand in hopes of having their favorite place to go to once again.
InnerRealm Designs is working to help businesses and families rebuild our NJ shore. If you know of a business that is still open during the rebuilding process, or know of businesses in need of help personally, please contact The InnerRealm Design Team. We would love to roll up our sleeves and help our fellow small businesses as well as the residents of those affected by Sandy.
