Update on a busy start to the school year for Toms River Regional Schools
Toms River Regional Schools is proud to announce that we are among a cohort of Toms River leaders that includes the Township, Police Department, and People’s Pantry that is ‘adopting’ the city of Beaumont, Texas in the effort of Hurricane Harvey relief. The Shore 2 Help campaign is accepting gift card donations to Walmart, Target, Lowe’s, and Home Depot to assist Beaumont in their recovery. We’re asking each school to make immediate arrangements to have gift card donation boxes available at the main office for students, parents, and staff.
We thank you in advance for your support in this effort. Our kinship with Beaumont is based on our experience of Sandy five years ago, and we should feel fortunate to have the opportunity to make a positive difference for a community enduring similar hardships. As the holidays approach, please strongly consider donating a gift card to help the Beaumont community in its recovery.
