August is like the Sunday of Summer, but we aren't ready to let go of the summer magic just yet. We're holding onto the Summer vibe as long as we can, riding the wave of volunteering into the Fall. Catch your first wave with one of more than 300 projects on our September calendar, add more waves with Jersey Cares's September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance, or rise up to lead others on their own journey as a Project Coordinator. We'll help you ride your own volunteer wave right through to next summer!
September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance
Jersey Cares presents the annual September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance, a day of bringing communities together on a day that was intended to tear them apart. On Saturday, September 8, 2018 hundreds of Jersey Cares volunteers will come together to strengthen a community deeply impacted by the events of September 11th. Join us!
