BELMAR - Volunteers panned out across the Garden State today to help people and places still recovering from Superstorm Sandy.

The volunteers took part in Sandy Service Day, a two-day event occuring Saturday and Tuesday, the anniversary of Sandy.

The event was organized by the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and Jersey Cares.

One group of volunteers from Colts Neck High School volunteered to paint the walls at St. Rose High School in Belmar, which suffered $3 million in damages due to Sandy.

"Doing stuff like this actually makes me feel real good afterwards and it's actually a lot of fun," said Colts Neck High School volunteer Avery Rosh.

Between today and Tuesday, Jersey Cares says it has organized 40 different projects. It says it hopes to mobilize 5,000 volunteers.
