Members of the BlueClaws front office were proud to spend the day on Wednesday, December 9 in Belford helping to re-pair and re-build a home damaged during Superstorm Sandy in 2012. 

Over 20 BlueClaws staff members were present at the site and helped in a variety of tasks under the direction of Jim Watson, the foreman representing A Future With Hope.

"We've always considered ourselves an active part of the community this was a great opportunity for us to give back to a family that is still in need," said Jim DeAngelis, the BlueClaws Vice President of Community Relations. "A Future With Hope does tremendous work and we are happy to be able to support an organization that has meant so much to so many families in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy."
