The Star Ledger: Home for Disaster Relief Volunteers receives grant from First Lady's Charity
Home for disaster relief volunteers receives grant from First Lady's charity
For a week at a time, dozens of volunteers assisting with disaster relief along the Jersey Shore call the second floor of the Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church’s education annex home.

The charity, which is chaired by First Lady Mary Pat Christie, awarded the church $31,300 to help renovate the bathrooms, among other upgrades, in a round of grants distributed earlier this month.
