MADISON, NJ - “Union Beach people are still living the nightmare of Superstorm Sandy,” said Robert Landrigan, Councilman for the Madison Borough.  “Families are still scattered, and we’d like to do something for the children.” 

The Madison Borough Council indicated that while most of us have moved on in our daily lives with some sense of normalcy after the effects of the storm, over 50 families are still struggling with loss and disruption. 

Landrigan indicated that a week of summer camp would provide kids with a fun getaway from all the sadness.   Area YMCA camps have offered substantial discounts so that children can attend.  When Landrigan visited the Union Beach area recently he spoke with a woman who indicated that she would love to send her child to camp and appreciated the financial support for the trip, but “she didn’t think she even had enough money to send her child on the bus to get there”.  That being said, the Madison initiative continues in an effort to help support Union Beach residents. 

Landrigan said that a family festival is planned for June 15th and 16th with more details to follow.  It will be held in the parking lot of Realogy located at 175 Park Avenue, and of course, proceeds will benefit the cause.  Come out for some fun and give some fun back to the kids of Union Beach.
