Please let me take a moment to clear up a few inaccurate statements.
Church of the Visitation only allowed the Drum Point School PTA on Drum Point Road in Brick to use our facility. We were not involved in the sale or distribution of any clothing, food or the like.
During the first few days after Hurricane Sandy, we were approached by Drum Point School PTA asking if we would allow them to use our facility as a distribution center/soup kitchen. Realizing the need for such a service we gave permission for the Drum Point School PTA to use our facilities as needed. During this time they used our kitchen and supplies to cook and serve the needy and utilized our Church Auditorium to distribute clothing as needed.
Church of the Visitation has never, nor will we ever profit from the hardship of others caused by such devastation as what we have seen by Hurricane Sandy.
On Friday November 9, Visitation asked the Drum Point School PTA to find an alternate location to render their services.
Realizing there will be a need for services for many months to come, Visitation is in a transitional process phase of setting up a donation/distribution center for people impacted by the storm.
As many of you many know Church of the Visitation has St. Vincent de Paul Society which has been helping the needy in our community for over 30 years. The dedicated people who oversee this ministry will now oversee the distribution efforts.
