On Friday, the PIX11 Morning News continues PIX11 Cares, a campaign aimed at helping those in communities hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy, with a visit to New Jersey. Sukanya Krishnan will be live anchoring portions of the Morning News from Union Beach from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., while PIX11 reporters and New Jerseyans Dan Mannarino and Lisa Mateo will be reporting live from other towns.

Sukanya will be joined by Paul Smith, the Mayor of Union Beach, Mike Harriott, Union Beach Office of Emergency Management, Coordinator and John K. Haines, Director of Public Works in Union Beach.

In Union Beach, PIX11's Dunkin Donuts Studio on the Run will be on hand to offer residents donuts and coffee, and Ames True Temper is generously donating shovels and rakes, items desperately needed in the cleanup effort. They will be at 613 Park Avenue, between Union and Ocean Avenues.

In Sea Bright, Dan Mannarino will speak with Mayor Dina Long and Lisa Mateo will be at Norwood Public School in Norwood, N.J.

In the past week, PIX11 Cares has broadcast live from Queens (Broad Channel, Breezy Point and the Rockaways) as well as Staten Island (New Dorp Beach) to help bring attention to areas severely affected by Hurricane Sandy.

PIX11 has also partnered with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which kicked off the Tunnel to Towers: Hurricane Relief Fund campaign on Friday with the assistance of New York sports icons Carl Banks, Robinson Cano, and John Franco to provide relief to those impacted by Hurricane Sandy. One hundred percent of the gross funds benefit those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
