Jersey Shore, NJ

Break A Difference (B•A•D) programs are offered in a variety of cities across the nation. More than three years after Hurricane Sandy devastated the Jersey Shore, hundreds of families remain displaced. Led by trained site supervisors, Break’rs will perform basic construction such as hanging drywall, insulating and painting homes to help families return home. A ferry ride to New York City allows everyone to get a taste of the Big Apple.
