Highlands NJ Receives Generous Donation Of Appliances To Help Families Rebuild Their Homes And Lives

HIGHLANDS, N.J., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Residents of Highlands, New Jersey, whose community was severely battered by Superstorm Sandy, were recently presented with a donation of much-needed appliances including refrigerators, microwaves, dryers, washers, ranges and water heaters courtesy of HD Supply Facilities Maintenance.

"Most people don't realize the families and businesses in Highlands are still struggling," said Bob Small, founder of Helping Highlands Survivors, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to help the community rebuild. 

Highlands, a small fishing village located at the tip of the Jersey shore, lost nearly 1,200 of its 1,500 downtown homes during Sandy and almost all of its business sustained significant damage. The impact to this working class neighborhood was unprecedented, in some cases, tearing apart structures that have stood for 80+ years.

"There has been an outpouring of support from people across the world to help residents of New Jersey," said Small. "But Highlands is not a major tourist destination, and its residents are still in need of basic home items such as appliances."

When HD Supply Facilities Maintenance heard that the people of the small coastal community were still in need of basic necessities, the company donated 25 household appliances valued at approximately $15,000. The San Diego based company is a leading supplier of maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) products to owners and managers of multifamily, hospitality, educational and commercial properties; healthcare providers; and municipal and government facilities.

"We are sincerely grateful to HD Supply for their generous donation that will have an immediate impact for families in Highlands," added Small who created Helping Highlands Survivors, Inc. in an effort to expedite donations and support to reach the people who most need it quickly and efficiently. His organization partners with other local associations to help the community recover from the storm's impact.

"The hard work and assistance from groups such as Bob Small's Helping Highlands Survivors is very much appreciated in helping my family return to our home.  We can't thank them enough in our time of greatest need," added Jacqui Kane whose family has lived in Highlands for generations.To donate to Helping Highlands Survivors Inc. or for more information, visit or contact Bob Small at or (732) 291-2191.
