9th Annual Holiday Toy Drive

Over the past eight years, we have raised nearly $45,000 through our Annual Holiday Toy Drive for underprivileged children in Jersey City. With the partnership of our good friends Gina Velliquette and Jason Velliquette, we have continued to make this event bigger and better. Each year our list of supporters grows to include more family, friends, and colleagues. Each year we’ve brought holiday cheer to more and more children.

Last year alone, we raised almost $11,000 and provided children in need with multiple gifts to make their holidays a little brighter.

The 28th Annual Jersey Cares Coat Drive

Nov 8th 2023 – Jan 7th 2024

For the past 27 years, The Jersey Cares Coat Drive has mobilized the collection and distribution of thousands of “gently used” winter coats to men, women, children, and infants in need. Last year, Jersey Cares collected more than 20,000 coats throughout the state of New Jersey. Companies, churches, police stations, schools and other organizations collect coats throughout the drive and deliver them to a central location, where volunteers then organize the donated coats and package them for pick-up. Our approved nonprofit partners then pick-up and distribute the coats to people in need.
