Hunterdon Youth Services is launching its first formal crowdfunding campaign to renovate our kitchen. The current kitchen is approximately 40 years old and at times has been reduced to a stovetop with one working burner and an oven that randomly alternates between baking and broiling. This has made it extremely challenging to prepare the more than 7,000 meals that we provide each year to the youth we serve.
HYS is hoping to engage the community to support our initiative by visiting StartSomeGood and contributing to our efforts. Help us spread the word and meet our goal so that we can not only prepare high quality, nutritious meals for our youth, but also have them participate in learning essential life skills.
The total project cost is estimated at nearly $70,000 and we have set a goal of raising $25,000 through crowdfunding with $7,200 already having been raised through grants and other fundraising activities.
Our crowdfunding campaign begins on November 15, 2016 and will end on December 30, 2016. Those interested can also contribute by mail (Hunterdon Youth Services, PO Box 2397, Flemington, NJ 08822), by phone (908-782-0848), or through our website. (Please click here).
Residents Volunteer at Recent Chamber Expo
HYS residents recently volunteered to assist the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce as they hosted the 28th annual Business and Home Expo & Restaurant Showcase at the Fieldhouse/Commons at Hunterdon Central High School. Our residents helped with preparation and clean up. By volunteering, these young men got to enjoy a sense of community, develop good work habits and share in the spirit of giving.
