TINTON FALLS, NJ - In their continuing effort to help feed some of Monmouth County's hungry, some residents of the Seabrook active adult retirement community will once again assemble sandwiches for the organization Bridges at the Shore at 10 a.m. tomorrow, August 15th. The group of compassionate and active ladies expect to surpass the 800 sandwich mark since they began this project three years ago.
Each summer, approximately one dozen resident volunteers gather in the kitchen of the Princeton Restaurant at Seabrook to assemble the turkey and cheese sandwiches before placing them in paper bags, along with apples, bags of chips, bottles of water and a very special form of encouragement. Residents included hand-written notes which were placed in each bag aimed at encouraging each recipient.
Seabrook resident Bev Hausker, who helped develop the program at Seabrook, said, "I became involved when I realized that there are a lot of people who needed a supper and went without one. This is a program that receives no help from the government and is simply people helping people. It is just to help someone get over a hump and give them the basic necessities."
The sandwich making will take place in the Princeton Restaurant kitchen, located on the second floor of the Town Square Clubhouse. Seabrook is located at 3000 Essex Rd., Tinton Falls, NJ 07753.
