Community members from all over gathered at the Renick family's home in Severna Forest to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The Renick family home in Severna Forest Thursday night was a sight to be seen. Spotlights illuminated a yard covered with boxes and bags, while Boy Scouts and community members sorted clothes and loaded boxes into the Clement Hardware truck. The entire effort was spurred by a common desire to help those in New Jersey impacted by Hurricane Sandy. “I can’t even express how thankful I am to everyone,” Kristen Renick said at one point in the night. “People just keep showing up with supplies and want to know what more they can do.” One man dropped off a bag of blankets. He then stood in the driveway asking what more he could do. He wanted to know if he could go to New Jersey; he said he would leave the next day. He just wanted to "do something…
