Wildwood adopts Sandy victims

Posted: Updated:

WILDWOOD - with hurricane sandy recovery still in full swing, Wildwood residents have been coming together to help those displaced by the superstorm.

With the North Wildwood firehouse as their staging area, folks have been collecting clothes, canned goods and other necessities for families that have been affected... And the numbers have been large.

Area hotels have opened their doors to those without a home, giving them a temporary place to stay.

Chris Gaspari is someone staying in one of those hotels.

He has been volunteering the past few days, after he himself lost his seaside heights home, and had to sleep in his car for 6 days.

Despite that, Chris says he's okay, and willing to help those who have also lost everything.

"I wanted to give back these last few days by volunteering a few hours each day, just to give back to this great community," Chris said.

The Morey's owned Starlux and Blue Palm are some of the hotels that have been coordinating with fema.

However, some of the victims staying there are concerned about their futures, because FEMA has imposed a deadline for their stay, which is the 15th of the month.

However, Gordon Clark, GM of Morey's Resorts, says he spoke to FEMA and is more than confident those dates of the 15th will soon be extended.

In the meantime, people are thankful that they have clothing, food and warm beds.
