Letter to the Editor: Renick, Middleton Sudano Say Thanks

Jeanette Middleton Sudano and Kristen Renick took Sandy relief supplies to New Jersey on Saturday and are now thanking the community for its help.

After a week of collecting supplies for area residents, sorting donations, and packing up trucks Kristen Renick and Jeanette Middleton Sudano took a truck-load of supplies to Highlands, NJ on Saturday.

Renick said everyone at the church Our Lady of Perpetual Help was extremely grateful for the donations.

Renick and Middleton Sudano wrote Patch to thank everyone for their help—but naturally, they aren't done yet.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Words can’t express enough our gratitude for helping to make our Hurricane Sandy Relief drive a success! Your support made our job of focusing on rallying the community together and getting the task at hand done, so much easier. I am so proud of our communities for pulling together to help our neighboring state of NJ in their time of need. Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Rev. William Dunlap and the community of Highland are extremely grateful and thank you all so very much. The outpouring of help and donations bears true witness to each one of us. We hope you enjoy the pictures

We planning on returning to Highlands this Saturday to help volunteer with the clean up efforts. Stay tuned for more information!

Thank you and God Bless,

Jeanette Middleton Sudano & Kristen Renick

Renick said they are still planning on returning to Highlands on Saturday with volunteers, but haven't been able to find a bus that would transport everyone.

According to Renick, people in Highlands need physical help. They need people to rip down houses, to take donations off of trucks, sort clothes, sort food, and direct people where to drop off donations.

As of Tuesday night, Renick said they had a great response from the community, and many people including: the football team, neighbors, police officers, kids over 14-years-old, and adults have offered to help.

However, they are still looking for transportation options and are asking if anyone can help.

Hello Everyone, The town of Highlands, NJ is feeling the love from Severna Park, MD and we are going to keep it going. The donations delivered last Saturday went directly into the hands of people in need. Our Lady of Perpetual Help and the surrounding communities are so appreciative of our help. The clean up situation & daily routine the community faces is enormous. They need more and we are going back!! Thanks to Pasadena resident and owner Barbara Bayer of Woodlawn Motor Coach we have a donated 44 passenger bus to fill. People are needed to help clean houses outs, unload deliveries, organize the pantry, and sort & fold cloths. Our plan is to depart from Severna Park High School senior parking lot on Saturday, Nov. 17th at 6:30am and return back around 10/10:30pm that night. Volunteers should plan to bring work gloves, work boots/shoes, and a change of clothes. I have 60 donated mask for volunteers. We might have room for other items; those details will be e-mailed out. We currently have Saturday night’s dinner coordinated and we are working on breakfast and lunch. If you would like to participate, please e-mail Jeanette Middleton Sudano at Jeanette.middleton@comcast.net Thank You & God Bless, Jeanette Middleton Sudano & Kristen Renick
