About Shore To Help

Who We Are

Shore To Help is a Monmouth County, 501(3)(c) charity that works to raise funds for local charities. The group began meeting in November 2007 as a small number of community members organizing a Thanksgiving Day football game. What started as a simple morning of fun with friends (on a day otherwise reserved for family) quickly evolved into a real event! With nearly 300 participants through the years and over $350,000 raised for local charities, Shore To Help aims to ease the burden for others through fund raising.
