No decision yet on who gets the money
Mary Pat Christie arrived in person on Friday to thank two local companies for raising money for her Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.

Motorists urged to take alternate routes

Drop-off site is Terry Perko Realtors, 2424 Bridge Ave., Point Borough
The public is urged to drop off non-perishable food to Terry Perko Realtors, 2424 Bridge Ave., Point Borough, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. The most needed foods are, soups, pasta, tuna fish and other canned meats, peanut butter and jelly, and jars of tomato sauce.

The real estate office is arranging for trucks to transport the food from the office to St. Gregory's in Point Beach.
