MIDDLETOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Superstorm Sandy was so devastating and so traumatic. Something like that can be truly scarring for children, and one former New Jerseyan is trying to help them through it.
“It was really hard to watch because, even on TV, you’re watching the destruction of all these places that you know and love,” Dee Andolpho Shockley told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams. “My children saw it as well. I have three girls who are 10, 8, and 6 and they were just devastated and heartbroken.”
Shockley lives in North Carolina now, but grew up in the Jersey Shore township of Middletown. Family and friends in Union Beach were left homeless.
So, she and her daughters wanted to help.
