Shrewsbury: Shrewsbury Boro School welcomed the Shockley Family to the Media Center for a special book signing. The Shockley Family, mom Dee and daughters Aly, Maddie and Katie live in North Carolina. When Hurricane Sandy hit their beloved Jersey Shore they watched news reports from far away and felt helpless. They wanted to do something.
Mom came up with an idea to write a children's book about the storm. The book tells the story from Aly's prespective about her family's love of going to the Jersey Shore for summer vacation. When the storm hit, it changed the face of the Jersey Shore forever. The girls parents assured them that all of their favorite places would be back and better than ever.
Proceeds from the book's sale will go to The Sandy Ground Project, a wonderful cause that will help rebuild 26 playgrounds destroyed by Sandy. The playgrounds will honor the memory of the 26 lives that were lost at the Sandy Hook, CT elementary school back in December 2012.
In the Media Center at SBS, The Shockley Family presented Bill Lavin, from The Sandy Ground Project, a check in the amount of $3,200 from book sales made in April of this year. As well, Brent MacConnell of SBS presented the project with a check for $800 from sales of the book made at the school.
