The Sandy Ground Project has made a commitment to build a park for each of the children killed in Newtown, CT. Areas destroyed by Hurricane Sandy have been chosen.
My neighbor town Union Beach, NJ was devastated by Sandy. A small town of working class people Union Beach lost more than a quarter of the homes and nearly every resident was impacted. The waterfront is slowly being restored.
Along with the RAINE Foundation and volunteers from all over the country a park in honor of Jack Pinto was dedicated this spring.
I chose a rainy day to go take some shots so that I didn't interrupt any children at play.
As you can see from the last photo, people from all over the country come to visit Jack's park.
You can see all the other parks built so far at the Sandy Project site. The RAINE foundation site lists the efforts underway to rebuild Union Beach and other towns in the county.
