BAY HEAD - For victims of Superstorm Sandy, the St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Bay Head has been a lifesaver.

The church has been open every single day since Sandy from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. serving three meals a day.

The church was also affected by the storm, and was itself operating on a generator at times. Still, Pastor Scott Bostwick wanted to keep the church open to help anyone in the community, parishioners or not, even though his own home suffered extensive damage.

Food donations have been pouring in from individuals and local businesses, and the church continues to serve roughly 300 meals a day. It recently received a $35,000 check to continue its work from money raised during the 12-12-12 concert.

Bostwick says the church will no longer offer lunch, starting Wednesday. The pastor says he doesn't want to take away business from the local eateries that are finally reopening after Sandy.
