The Jersey Shore has always been a core part of the Jersey Strong culture. Most of Jersey Strong's first clubs were built along the Monmouth and Ocean County shoreline. The Jersey Shore is home to many Jersey Strong staff and thousands of Jersey Strong members.
When Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey in the Fall of 2012, our mantra of “Jersey Strong” took on a new meaning for the residents of New Jersey and saw the creation of the Jersey Strong Foundation™.
On Monday, May 8th, 2017 the Jersey Strong Foundation hosted the 3rd Annual Jersey Strong Golf Outing at Eagle Oaks Golf & Country Club. And boy, oh boy, it was a rousing success! This year's event was the largest in its history. The outing saw an influx of golfers (over 120) and over $30,000 in donations! All of which, will be matched to benefit The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, for a grand total of $60,000! The FoodBank can distribute 3 meals for every $1 donated, which means our good friends over at The FoodBank can deliver 180,000 meals to our friends and neighbors in need!
We hope to see you next year, so we can assist even more friends and families in need!
Since Hurricane Sandy, the Jersey Strong Foundation™ has grown into a charitable organization that is led by Heidi Roma. Under Heidi’s leadership as Chairperson, the organization has created partnerships and issued grants and donations to recovery organizations like Habitat For Humanity, Fulfill (formerly The Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties), and The Monmouth County Long-Term Recovery Group.
Founded by the Roma Family, the Jersey Strong Foundation™ is a 501c3 public charity that provides funding and resources to people, families and communities in New Jersey who are healing from hardship, natural disaster and other tragedies.
