Volunteer in New Jersey with Jersey Cares!
Volunteer throughout New Jersey when you want,
where you want, with no long-term commitment.
Make a difference today!
Last month, Jersey Cares partnered with Alexion Pharmaceuticals at their corporate headquarters as part of their first ever day Global Day of Service benefitting Hill Regional Career High School in New Haven, CT. With 400 Alexion employees participating, 325 Alexion volunteers set out across the school itself, creating inspirational murals, revitalizing the teachers’ lounge with new furniture, organizing the storage room, and much more. Back at the office, another 75 volunteers took on the task of creating appreciation kits for the teachers and staff at Hill Regional. Thank you Alexion and Hill Regional Career High school for such a great day!
NBA Employees Slam Dunk Their Day of Service
As part of their 2016 Employee Day of Service, 210 NBA volunteers participated in 3 projects across Northern New Jersey. Employees conducted educational workshops with students, painted inspirational murals, and planted shrubs and flowers at BRICK Avon Academy in Newark, sorted food donations at the Community Food Bank of New Jersey in Hillside, and assembled military care packages at the NBA offices, to be sent to our men and women serving overseas. Even a former NBA player joined in on the fun! We would like to thank NBA for their continued support of Jersey Cares and the community.
Eli Lilly’s 2016 Global Day of Service
It was that time of year once again for the Eli Lilly Global Day of Service! This year, about 300 employees from Lilly’s New Jersey offices participated in 11 projects, all in one day, spanning from New Jersey all the way to Philadelphia. These volunteer projects benefitted many nonprofit and public organizations including public schools, senior centers, hospitals, community centers, and much more. Many Eli Lilly employees are quite experienced volunteers and were able to successfully complete complex projects such as building fences, creating rock mosaics, painting banners, assembling handicapped accessible raised beds, and much more. Thank you, Eli Lilly, for your continued dedication to service!
Integra Discovers the Joy Volunteering on Columbus Day
Columbus Day is typically a day in which many people can take off to relax and celebrate the discovery of our nation. However, this was no day off for 200 employees from Integra. These volunteers completely revitalized Franklin Elementary School in Trenton by painting murals, landscaping, painting line games, conducting educational workshops with the students, and much more. The students were in awe as they walked the hallways and saw the amazingly colorful and inspirational murals that were being painted. Nothing reminds volunteers of the great work that they are doing more than the look of disbelief or happiness on a child’s face. Thank you, Integra for making a difference this Columbus Day!
