Restoring Union Beach Memories

My name is Jeannette Van Houten. I have been a resident of Union Beach, NJ for the past 42 years. On October 29, 2012 Sandy the Superstorm devastated my small town. When we woke on October 30, 2012 our lives had changed forever. Many families lost their homes and possessions. I made it my mission to give my friends and family something extremely special to each and every one, I want to return their photos that have been found. I have been cleaning, drying, scanning the photos that I have found and now moving forward to the photos that others turned in. I would like to do 3 things - 1 purchase battery operated scanners so I can have multiple people scanning photos at the same time, purchase external storage to back up the scans so professional restorers can work on the damaged photos and the third is purchase gift cards to so families can reprint some of the precious photos.


Please feel free to contact me if you need further information. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
