The United Way of Northern New Jersey, which serves Morris, North Essex, Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties, has created a Disaster Recovery Fund to assist recovery and rebuilding efforts in the northern New Jersey region in the wake of Hurricane Irene.

“Many in our communities have lost so much and we know they will not be made whole overnight,” said United Way of Northern New Jersey CEO John Franklin. “There are always unmet needs that only the local community can address over time. United Way is poised to get families connected with the right supports for individual needs. We will be reaching out through our extensive regional network to see that families facing ongoing hardships are not forgotten weeks and months later.”

If you need help, see the United Way’s NJ 211 Web site. You can also dial 2-1-1 24 hours a day, seven days a week for help in finding available assistance services. If you would like to volunteer to help those in need, see the United Way Volunteer Link . To donate to the recovery fund, send checks to United Way of Northern New Jersey, P.O. Box 1948, Morristown, N.J. 07962. The memo line should say “United Way Disaster Recovery Fund”.
