Any money received from Global Giving will be distributed to local communities in need. Global Reach International will be contacting local municipalities, fire departments and volunteer emergency response units. We will require them to advise us in writing of their needs. Once we have this information, a check will be distributed to them for their relief. Since Global Reach International is based in New Jersey, we are able to contact emergency personnel directly.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Help New Jersey residents by donating money to the hardest hit areas. Global Reach International is a local nonprofit organization based in Northern New Jersey. Once money is received, 100% of all donations will go to areas most in need of relief. Global Reach International was started by Bill Sansone after his service in the Peace Corps. You can visit www.globalreachinternational.org or call 201-874-4973 for more information.
