CHATHAM, NJ - Sandy Roos had a reason to "like" Pipe Works Services, long before she entered a contest on Facebook.

Turns out, Paul Giglio, Jr., Pipe Works president, already had a fan in Roos before she liked his page and won a new Kindle Fire that was presented to her on Monday, Aug. 12.

"I'm a member of Ogden Presbyterian Church in Chatham and we took a donation drive for Sandy victims and the community response was so overwhelming," said Roos, a Chatham resident. "We had so much that we couldn't get it down to the beach. When I called Pipe Works and asked if they had a truck, I got a response within 15 minutes saying that they would bring the truck.

"They brought it, but it wasn't big enough so they went back and got another one and donated the manpower to take it all down for us. They are an amazing part of the community."

The donations were transported to "Your Grandmother's Cupboard" in Toms River and they distributed it to all the different shore points that needed help from there.

Giglio recalls seeing a request for a truck on facebook by Joann Carroll of Coldwell Bankers. Giglio responded and Carroll connected him with Roos.

"When I liked Pipe Works, I liked it, but when I put the link on my page, I told the whole story about how they donated their truck and time," Roos said.

About 800 people said they liked Pipe Works on facebook and Melissa D. of Cranford won first prize, a new iPad. Roos received the second prize. A third party selected the winners.

"We're always looking for a fun way to celebrate our customers and give back to our community," said Giglio, whose establishment is located on River Road. "We know who makes us great, our friends and customers. Whenever we have a chance to give back, you can be sure we will take it."

Longtime Chatham Resident Passes the Torch to Current Residents

July 13, 2018

To the Editor,

I moved to Chatham from Ohio in 1961 and left just over a year or so ago. My daughters went through the school system and one of them still lives there with her son.

Clearly, we found the Library and local educational opportunities to our liking. 

When it came to giving back to the community, I chose to support the Library and served as a Board member for 15 ...
