Anybody else in Highlands over the Sandy Charity Benefits?

w&scommunityunity Dec 29th Wind & Sea is doing a “Community Unity” and for a $30 donation you can help the “Hope for Highlands” and “Sea Bright Rising” charities for those devastated by the hurricane. I personally am over it.

BTW – anybody know anybody that actually benefited from the Highlands charities?


  1. Give it out exactly how? First come first serve? Renters, homeowners? Everyone? Someone? Is it limited to those who suffered some damage or flood damage?
    All you have to do is go to OLPH or old boro hall for a few hours and see exactly how many people who do not “need” will take because they can. Should these same people be entitled to the same amount of money that someone who’s had to leave their home get? Or, how many people tried to get those gift cards last weekend just because they live in town.


    • I wasn’t aware there were people living in town who weren’t affected by flood damage. Of course, I usually only associate with the people who live in MY ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD which includes the entire downtown! 1,300 people is a helluva lot of people in a town the size of Highlands! And I guess I don’t have the time to go to OLPH or boro hall for a few hours just to watch people….I’m too busy putting air into my mattress and staring at the blank walls in my empty apartment in Eatontown when I’m not on hold with my insurance company!


  2. A lot of this money that has been raised hasn’t been given out yet because they’re still organizing a system for distribution. If they just randomly started handing out money, I’m sure they’d be criticized for that, too!
