Organizers: Homeless to Independence, Inc. - Executive Director, Ann Martin-Frey and Keepsakes by Faith, LLC -Owner, Faith Saunders.
Purpose: To mobilize New Jerseyians statewide to make a difference in their communities. There is a vast amount of need and this has significantly increased given our current economic situation. Our goal is to coordinate various community projects on a quarterly basis (at least for now) that members of the community can participate in.
Past Success: Winter Outerwear Drive (a Coat Drive) Goal was to collect at 200 coats that we would give to persons who are homeless, disabled and the working poor. Well 200 turned into over 2500 coats and counting. This was distributed to various individuals and agencies that provide services to the target group throughout NJ.
Future Plans: We are currently exploring various options for the remaining quarters. Some ideas includes a Mentoring Project for Teens and/or Undeserved individuals, a Clothing/Shoes Drive that would benefit Haiti and others in our communities who are in need. We will definitely do the Coat Drive in the 4th quarter of this year again.
