HESS CORPORATION MAKES MASSIVE DONATION TO BELMAR’S TOY DRIVE
Mayor Matthew J. Doherty today received a generous and massive donation of 1,000 Hess Trucks from the Hess Corporation. Belmar launched its annual Toy Drive last week and is presently attempting to gather enough toys to assist all Belmar residents in need this Holiday Season.
“The Hess Corporation was a big partner to the Borough last year in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, their donation this season shows their continued dedication to the residents of Belmar. I can’t thank them enough.” Mayor Doherty said.
There are still Belmar families displaced by Hurricane Sandy, who now face a second Christmas away from their homes. Mayor Doherty launched the 2013 Toy Drive to ensure that every child has the magical holiday they deserve. Consider supporting this initiative by donating new, unwrapped toys to Borough Hall at 601 Main Street or attending Connolly Station’s donation event on December 12th (details below).
