The Jersey Shore has always been a core part of WoW’s culture. Most of WoW’s first clubs were built along the Monmouth and Ocean County shoreline. The Jersey Shore is home to many WoW staff and thousands of WoW members.
When Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey in the Fall of 2012, WoW’s mantra of “Jersey Strong” took on a new meaning for the residents of New Jersey and saw the creation of the Jersey Strong Foundation™.
Founded by the Roma Family, the Jersey Strong Foundation™ is a 501c3 public charity that provides funding and resources to people, families and communities in New Jersey who are healing from hardship, natural disaster and other tragedies.
Since Hurricane Sandy, the Jersey Strong Foundation™ has grown into a charitable organization that is led by Heidi Roma. Under Heidi’s leadership as Chairperson, the organization has created partnerships and issued grants and donations to recovery organizations like Habitat For Humanity, The Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, and The Monmouth County Long-Term Recovery Group.
The Jersey Strong Foundation™ also plays a meaningful role in unifying hundreds of WoW staff and thousands of WoW members, who fundraise for it annually. Learn more about the Jersey Strong Foundation and how you can be a part of it.
