On Saturday, September 17th we brought together nearly 100 volunteers of all ages – from 4 years to 75! – to distribute 180 care bags and 2,700 items to homeless across the city.
Twenty-six volunteers from St. Peter Youth Group in Ridgewood, NJ joined in, and the group will host their first JoyJ outreach on October 22nd in NJ! An enthusiastic group of young women, troop leaders and parents from Girl Scouts Troop 3107 of NYC helped with packing and distribution. SUCH unbelievable energy from an incredible mix of NYC natives and visitors!
Keep up the great work – together we can make great strides in ending homelessness across the country!
