Every week Millicent Jackson demonstrates that volunteerism is an integral part of her life. She began volunteering after listening to national leaders calling citizens to take action and volunteer in their communities. Millicent took their words to heart and joined Jersey Cares right away.
Like many Jersey Cares members, she tried a host of local projects before settling on Mobile Meals in Newark. A program that aims to bring nutritional staples to local residents in need. Since then, as the dedicated Project Coordinator, she’s been devoted to making the project a success. Volunteers rave, “Millicent does an exceptional job throughout the entire volunteer event.” Her caring and optimistic personality has contributed to the success of Mobile Meals in Newark. Millicent shared with us that ‘all the volunteers work well together and enjoy the camaraderie fostered by the foodbank organizers and participants alike.” She was also happy to report that the recipients are always friendly and appreciative to the volunteers.
