Re: Disaster Strikes in the Borough of Edgewater. How You Can Help.
As you know, disaster struck Wednesday night, in the Borough of Edgewater, when a devastating fire swept through the Avalon Apartments. Approximately 1,000 borough residents have been displaced.
Whenever a crisis of this magnitude hits anywhere our State, New Jersey Mayors contact the League asking what help is needed and how they can help. We have reached out to Mayor McPartland, who has indicated that financial assistance for the displaced residents would be appreciated. The Borough of Edgewater and the Board of Education sponsored fundraising web sites are www.gofundme.com/edgewater-fire and www.edgewaterstrong.org.
Contact Executive Director Bill Dressel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-695-3481 ext. 122, if you have any questions.
Thanks for all you do.
Very truly yours,
Hon. Brian C. Wahler,
President, NJLM and
