New Jersey is not South Sudan—but where there are people in need of help, that's where Timonium woman Linda Tice wants to be.
Patch last wrote about Tice in November 2011, weeks before she was due to depart on a mission to South Sudan on behalf of Disaster Aid USA. Numerous delays put the trip on hold, leaving Tice "very disappointed," as she wrote in numerous email exchanges.
At 66 years old, Tice believed (last year) it was her time to give back. A year later, she's heading to Woodbridge, NJ to help the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
She is going as a representative of Disaster Aid USA and Rotary District 7620, which encompasses central Maryland and Washington D.C.
"This will likely be the first of three trips to NJ," Tice wrote in an email. "Several Rotary Districts are coordinating the effort to bring relief to those affected by the storm."
Tice promised to keep Patch updated on the mission. With that, we once again have to put her in our "Volunteers in the News" spotlight.
