Local Charity Accepting Donations To Assist After Jersey Fire

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del. - After seeing the devastation in New Jersey -- one local charity is trying to help the shore rebuild.

The Charity Wishlist is an online hub, aimed at helping other charities and non-profits by providing them with a way to accept donations of either money or goods online.

Little did they know, less than a month after starting the company and a disaster relief fund, fire would tear through a Jersey shore boardwalk.

"When we heard about the fire in seaside heights, our hearts just sank, my husband knows so many people in that area who lost everything and to have this hit them and then be devastated again, we knew that we could do something. We have a mechanism in place to accept donations online, and we can work with the first responders on the ground and charities on ground, on site, to give them what they need," says Andrea Wojcik with The Charity Wishlist.

At least 90 percent of all donations will go to the organization for those in need, says Wojcik, and not overhead or administrative fees.
