US State Department visitors view Red Cross NJ Sandy progress
"Because of Red Cross we have gotten this far" - Beville Harris, Sandy survivor/home owner

On Tuesday, May 7, 2013 U.S. State Department visitors from Afghanistan and India met with American Red Cross South Jersey Region Representatives in Toms River, NJ. At the request of the State Department, Red Cross provided a successful client case story at the Harris residence. Harold and Beville Harris are Superstorm Sandy survivors who had lost all the contents of their home from two feet of storm surge flooding and mold. Six months after Sandy the Harris couple are well on their way to returning to living in their home again with the assistance of American Red Cross and other organizations assisting in recovery across NJ.
