Heal Hoboken Initiative Aims to Raise $100,000 for the Hoboken Relief Fund Hoboken Technology Community Led by NJ Tech Meetup Teams With HealHoboken.org to Sell T-Shirts and Sweatshirts to Raise Money and Awareness Business Wire HOBOKEN, N.J. -- November 15, 2012 NJ Tech Meetup, New Jersey’s largest technology community, today announced that it has established Heal Hoboken, a relief effort aimed to raise $100,000 to help rebuild the city of Hoboken in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. All proceeds from Heal Hoboken will be donated to the Hoboken Relief Fund. On October 29^th, Hurricane Sandy devastated the city of Hoboken, flooding over 50 percent of the city, leaving schools, homes, and hospitals damaged or destroyed. Aaron Price, founder of NJ Tech Meetup, in conjunction with members of the NJ Tech meetup community, have teamed together to help raise funds for Hoboken by designing t-shirts and sweatshirts to sell through www.healhoboken.org. “We saw the way New Jersey and the country were coming together in amazing ways after the storm and immediately noticed Hoboken residents doing everything possible to help each other out,” said Price. “The NJ Tech Meetup calls Hoboken home and we want to ensure this city is rebuilt to be better and stronger than ever.” Heal Hoboken has raised nearly $20,000 in its first 10 days and will be accepting donations through December 5 in an effort to collect $100,000.
