Tuckerton Seaport Invites the Community Back Again for a Family Meal
Looking back on 2012, Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum remembers the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy as a time when the community pulled together despite tremendous obstacles. In South Jersey, adversity brought out the best in people. Following the storm, the Seaport opened its doors for a Community Gathering on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, bringing local families in need together with families who wanted to give. This is the third year of this tradition, and last year, the Seaport served over 578 guests. This year many of these local families are still in need and even more families are looking for ways to give back.
Tuckerton Seaport invites all local families, regardless of need, to come together on Thanksgiving Weekend to enjoy a meal together and give thanks. This community meal will be hosted on the Seaport’s grounds under a huge heated tent. We will have entertainment and plenty of family activities, including make-and-take crafts perfect for the holidays. This community event and activities will be offered at no cost. Help us bring the Southern Ocean County community back together and let those in need know that we are all in the rebuilding effort together.

The community meal at the Seaport will feature a Giving Tree, where guests can spread a little holiday cheer by selecting a local family and buying them holiday gifts. If you know of a family in Southern Ocean County who is in need, please let us know so we can find them a Secret Santa.
