The Volunteer Voice

 Vol 5, Issue 8                               Be the change. Volunteer.                             August 2016

School is around the corner, the final beach trips before the weather cools down, last minute BBQ's with family and friends: these are the moments that define August. But why not do something out of the ordinary while also enjoying the warmth that August has to give? Consider going above and beyond the expectations of summer's finest experiences by volunteering with Jersey Cares these last few weeks of summer. From planting seeds in Newark to cleaning up the beaches in Island Beach State Park, you'll be able to spend time outdoors while knowing you made a difference to your community. So come join Jersey Cares before the summer sun takes its final bow!
