Helping Hurricane Sandy Recovery

Hurricane Sandy did some awful damage to St. Rose High School Convent in Belmar NJ.

Hurricane Sandy and it’s Vicious Aftermath

So much destruction

The ground is flooded and the fence is destroyed

When Boy Scout Zach Canderozzi, a Freshman, asked us to help him with his service project to help get his Eagle ranking, it was impossible to say no, particularly after seeing the pictures.

Zach wanted to clean out the area and re-landscape so that the Sisters could enjoy the outdoors again. Labor was going to be provided by his fellow boy scouts over the course of several weekends, and they were looking for donations.

We shipped Zach enough panels of Jiminy Picket Vinyl Fence to complete the fence portion of the project. We enjoyed the pictures and the email he sent through informing us of his progress:

“I just wanted to let you know that the fence is almost completely installed. It really was very easy for me to put in with my Dad and Scoutmaster. Some other work has been going on at the school in the same area and we just have to install the last 2 panels this weekend. Thought you might like to see some pictures of the progress Ive made….So many of the Sisters who live there, workers who are doing repairs, and passerbys have stopped to compliment the fence. It really gives the project a finishing touch. More pictures will come. I cant thank you enough.

All the best,



Assembling the panels

Well done Zach!

Well done Zach!

Zach, you’re an inspiring teenager. Thanks for letting us be a part of your Service Project. We have no doubt you’ll eventually get your Eagle Scout ranking!
