‘Sandy Claus' success
Thank you to all who made Operation Sandy Claus a success. This local effort to make Christmas brighter for students at Pinelands Regional Junior and Senior high schools in Ocean County, N.J. — many whose homes were either lost or damaged by the storm — couldn't have happened without you.
On Dec. 10, Bob Prinkey of Cavanaugh Trucking served as Sandy Claus, delivering more than $10,000 in merchandise to a waiting brigade of Pinelands Regional School District officials.
Carol Turano, the district's youth-based services coordinator, said it was overwhelming to see all of the gifts. She said the district was grateful.
Henschel and Sons Exhaust and Equipment Warehouse and Cavanaugh Trucking made this mission possible. Countless area organizations, businesses, churches and community members made it a success.
In a thank-you note received from a student was this quote by Henry David Thoreau: “Goodness is the only investment that never fails.”
Because of your goodness, Christmas arrived and hope came to a community so in need of both.
