On Friday November 9th, the Verona Policemen's Benevolent Association Local 72 in cooperation with Goman's Moving Company Inc. organized a collection for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The collection was held for two days and on Saturday November 10th, after loading up the last of the donations, Verona P.B.A. members along with the owners of Goman’s Moving Company, pulled away from the Kings Supermarket and set out for the hour-long trip to Ocean County’s Borough of Bay Head.
After being cleared at a NJ Army National Guard Security Checkpoint, PBA members were met by Bay Head Police Officers, Ocean County Sheriffs
Officers, Michigan State Troopers, FEMA Workers, and Volunteers, who all helped unload the, (almost Filled), 27-foot long moving truck.
The kindness and generosity of people during the two-day collection was immense and was beyond measure.
On behalf of the Verona Police P.B.A. Local 72, I would like to thank everyone who donated to this great cause. Without your help, this collection would not have been possible.
Thank you for your generosity and for your support.
Ed Carattini Jr.
