Cape May MAC Contributing to Relief Efforts for Sandy

CAPE MAY – The Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC) is collecting donations and raising funds through its regular tours and activities to help residents of towns who suffered damage and loss from Hurricane Sandy’s landfall on the eastern seaboard Oct. 29.

Hurricane Sandy is estimated to be the second costliest storm in the nation’s history after Hurricane Katrina. Millions of residents from New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Rhode Island suffered the damaging effects of high winds, flooding and storm surge. Many victims of Sandy are regular visitors to Cape May.

“We continue to be extremely thankful that Cape May came through Hurricane Sandy safely and that none of our historic sites sustained any damage,” said MAC Director Michael Zuckerman. “The Emlen Physick Estate, the Cape May Lighthouse, Cape May Trolley Tours and the World War II Lookout Tower have been open to visitors since Friday, Nov. 2, and Cape May’s holiday season tours and activities are in full swing. Nevertheless, we are ever-mindful that many of our neighbors are slowly and painfully attempting to put together the pieces of their lives and we want to do what we can to support them.”

MAC has several initiatives to support those affected by Hurricane Sandy:

• For a cash donation, visitors to MAC’s Carriage House Gallery, 1048 Washington St., can write their name on a paper ornament to decorate the “Sandy Tree,” part of “An Old-fashioned Christmas” exhibit. Funds collected will be donated to help students of Atlantic Cape Community College (ACCC) – with campuses in Atlantic and Cape May Counties – who were adversely affected by Hurricane Sandy. Some students lost their homes and vehicles, many were displaced for days, most lost power and many lost critical hours of work to support themselves and their families. Support will be provided to students – many are low income or work full-time, and 30 percent are raising children – who need to replace books, computer equipment, clothing or food or need financial resources for extra costs related to the storm. For more information on The Sandy Relief Fund for Atlantic Cape Students, part of the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation, see www.atlantic.edu/relief/index.html?b1.http://www.atlantic.edu/relief/index.html?b1

• Non-perishable food items are being collected through the month of Dec. at the Emlen Physick Estate, 1048 Washington St., for donation to the Cape May Community Food Closet, which feeds 250 needy families per week.

• MAC is donating $5 toward Hurricane Sandy relief from every ticket sold to the annual Brunch, Bingo & Lace event, set for Dec. 8 at 9:30 a.m. Brunch, Bingo & Lace features a brunch buffet at Aleathea’s Restaurant, The Inn of Cape May, 7 Ocean St. along with rounds of bingo and prizes, topped off with a fashion show featuring comfy leisure wear from Cape May’s Lace Silhouettes and Cotton Company, located on the Washington Street Mall. Admission is $25. For more information or to purchase tickets, call             609-884-5404       or             800-275-4278      , or visit MAC’s Web site at www.capemaymac.org.
