HUGE THANK YOU to St. Peters Youth Group in River Edge, NJ who hosted an amazing outreach on October 22nd!
A whopping 40 volunteers joined together last Friday to pack comfort bags full of clothing, hygiene items, food and a phenomenal resource guide to local resources where those in need can find food, shelter, and medical care.
Volunteers distributed the comfort bags to homeless in Newark, NJ, meeting 80 new individuals who were in need of help. As a bonus, through the generosity of a bystander volunteers were also able to give out $100 worth of McDonald’s gift cards !
Beyond the physical help our volunteers provided, the personal connections people made during the outreach brought such joy to everyone involved.
We look forward to seeing this INCREDIBLE group to organize more outreaches together with JoyJ in the future!!
