Volunteers will be available to help Atlantic County seniors and disabled residents cut and move fallen trees between Saturday, July 21 and Saturday, Aug. 18, announced via
The volunteers will work free of charge and will provide their own equipment, according to police. The service is being offered in the wake of a derecho that struck the Mid-Atlantic Region on June 30. While power has been restored to those residents who lost it temporarily, the full cleanup throughout the county is ongoing.
Those in need of assistance, or those who wish to volunteer, may call New Jersey's 2-1-1 hotline, ext. 21.
