Project Pic  of the  Month 

T-Mobile didn't phone it in during their service project, as volunteers completely transformed a school in Paterson. 100 employees built new furniture, painted murals, built benches, painted the teachers' lounge, and much more. They even provided a Foosball table and gaming consoles to create a "huddle-up zone" for student socialization and recreation. Check out their before (top) and after (bottom) to see just how much these hardworking volunteers accomplished.

Corporate Spotlight: MLK Day of Service

For many corporate employees, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a Federal Holiday on which you can stay home from work, relax on the couch, and take your mind off the stresses of everyday life. For some corporate employees, MLK Day is an honorary day on which they celebrate the legacy of Dr. King through service. This year, several corporate  volunteer groups donated their time during the 2016  Jersey  Cares Martin Luther King Day of Service, including Bank of America, UBS, T-Mobile, Bayer and Eli Lilly & Company. These volunteers participated at several projects throughout the state painting murals, organizing libraries, leading Civil Rights workshops with students, creating fleece blankets, and so much more!  Our heartfelt thanks go out to the hundreds of corporate  volunteers  who donated their time to honor Dr. King's legacy!
