During the holiday season, the Holmdel Helps Committee placed a white 
mailbox in town hall to collect gift cards for our neighbors in Keansburg to 
help them during the holiday season. Holmdel residents were notified of 
the box via a flyer sent home with Holmdel Students and asked to pick up 
gift cards and drop them off at Town Hall.

More than 55 gift cards totaling over $2,200 have been donated to date. 

Keansburg Councilman and Holmdel Police Officer Tom Foley delivered 
the cards to Keansburg Office of Emergency Management’s Ginger Rogan 
who went through the list of Superstorm Sandy affected residents to 
disperse the gift cards. Efforts were made to combine the cards into $50 
increments and they were given directly to Keansburg residents who 
suffered significant damage to their homes during Superstorm Sandy. The 
donations included cards to Home Depot, Lowes, Sears and Bed, Bath and 
Beyond. 

Keansburg still has many residents dealing with the recovery from Sandy, 
the Holmdel Helps Committee looks to continue to help them well into the 
New Year. Thank you to all of the Holmdel residents who contributed to 
making this holiday a bit brighter for those need.

The Holmdel Helps Committee is led by Committeeman Joseph Ponisi and 
includes Tom Foley, Darlene Kiss, Teri Ferguson, Dina D’Ambrosi and Allison Fleck.
