The Salvation Army served about 300 people a Thanksgiving Breakfast along with a take-away Turkey Food Basket for 150 families at the local Salvation Army branch in Hackensack, NJ.  

Food was provided in partnership with The Community Food Bank of New Jersey. 

The Salvation Army invited guests from the community, including low income families, parents, children and grandparents, the handicapped, and seniors to a complete hearty traditional Thanksgiving Day Breakfast, including scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon and hash browns.  

Take-away turkeys were also given to families for their Thanksgiving Dinner.

    Ghosts of Sandy still visible in Ortley Beach

And the storm-slammed empty houses on some streets and trailers on lots are painful reminders that Ortley Beach was dubbed “ground zero” by some after the Oct. 29, 2012 storm devastated the Jersey coast. A number of Ortley Beach residents attended the Aug. 26 Township Council meeting to ask what, if anything, can be done to speed things up.
