Are you insane? This event is for Ocean City residents who have lost their homes and need a place to live. Do you have no clue what is going on here? This has absolutely nothing to do with 2nd home owners.

Jill, why can't you just say thank you...for all the help that OCNJCARE organization has given to the people of our town full time and 2nd home owners and how everyone is trying to help one another. The word "Thank You" goes along way.

As a Penna residence with a second home in Ocean City (since May, 2011) I can say that there is no where I would rather be full time than ocean city. Becoming a full time resident is our plan within the next 2 years, Our neighbors on Pleasure Avenue have been wonderful since the day we made settlement and I have never felt that Ocean City has been them and us. I know everybody is upset about what has happened to our City and together we can get the City and the homeowners back to the way we remember. As a side note I cannot thank the City of Ocean City enough for all they have done as far as clean up is concerned. Within days of my family putting out wet rugs, flooring, furniture, etc. it was picked up by the Sanitation Dept. We lost everything except for the house itself so you can imagine how much we have put out. We have a plan to start over (thankfully we had flood insurance) and will always feel that Ocean City is our Home. Even though we did not know about all the help being offered (no electricity in Ocean City and no Internet in Penna), I am so glad that there have been people taking care of others at this time of need.

I live in Camden County and I am very concerned for all those who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy, especially at the Jersey Shore. Yesterday, I was able to drive down and assess the damage in Brigantine. My question is: Now that if it two weeks later, how is Ocean City doing and how are the people doing? Did you sustain a lot of damage? I seem to hear more in the press about the beaches in Ocean County.

Yes. We are all in this together. Let's put petty unimportant things aside and genuinely embrace the entire community in all times good and bad.
