Like many people watching images of the devastation left in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, the Bethesda children were stunned by what they saw and felt compelled to do something.
Nearly a week after Superstorm Sandy forced the evacuation of barrier island towns all along New Jersey's coast, gamblers trickled back into Atlantic City alongside people who live in neighborhoods the tourists rarely see.
Seven gay and lesbian New Jersey couples, along with many of their children, are going to court to try to force the state to recognize gay marriage.
The mission, which serves hungry and homeless people, saw the number of people who now depend on it swell after the storm, Mr. Davidson said.
Mr. Davidson said the mission has had anywhere from 25 to 100 volunteers at a time from all across the country, though the Thanksgiving holiday has lessened the numbers.
