Fire devastates Seaside Heights, NJ
This afternoon a large fire spread across the boardwalk of Seaside Heights and Seaside Park, New Jersey affecting 19 businesses and damaging the recently rebuilt boardwalk. Architecture for Humanity has been working with the Borough of Seaside Heights as a part of the Restore the Shore program, to improve the boardwalk and to build a community events center, following the destruction to their iconic boardwalk and town caused by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.
Architecture for Humanity's hearts and thoughts are with the residents of Seaside Heights and Seaside Park as they face this tragedy. We will continue our support of the community of Seaside Heights and will update our program partners as more information becomes available.
