Vol. 5 Issue 12 Be The Change. Volunteer December 2016
Friend, this time of year is launched by giving thanks, punctuated by giving gifts and finished by giving toasts to our hopes for a new year. This special time full of love and hope inevitably draws many of us to join with our neighbors to make lives and communities better. Follow that feeling to a coat collection or sorting project with The Jersey Cares Coat Drive or make a child's wish come true as one of Frosty's Friends.
This year, Jersey Cares has received more than 3,000 letters with holiday wishes from children who may not otherwise receive any gifts this season. Help us spread some needed support and cheer by granting a child's wish as one of Frosty’s Friends.
As they do every year, volunteers from Becton Dickinson -- more than 100 strong -- fanned out to volunteer at four locations in North Jersey. From bringing Halloween decor to Trinitas Regional Hospital to revitalizing Branch Brook Park in Newark, Halloween couldn't scare off the volunteers' commitment.
Take volunteering to the next level and become a Project Coordinator! Project Coordinators lead Jersey Cares’ recurring volunteer opportunities and serve as a liaison between volunteers, our nonprofit partners and Jersey Cares. Project Coordinators commit to lead two or more projects per month for a minimum of six months. Please Visit our website or contact Amanda Naftaly to learn more.
