In order to share all of the amazing volunteer work being done across New Jersey, the Jersey Cares City Spotlight will showcase exceptional civic engagement weekly in a specific New Jersey community.
Morristown is a quaint North Jersey community that’s the perfect blend of urban and suburban. It’s a popular destination for foodies, families, theatre patrons, and Jersey Cares volunteers! Jersey Cares has been mobilizing volunteers in Morristown since we started our work and our first offices were located there. This past winter, over 100 coats were distributed through The 18th Annual Jersey Cares Coat Drive and over 100 hot meals were prepared for our Morristown neighbors. In the month of April, Jersey Cares volunteers will socialize with the senior citizens of Morristown provide over 40 hours of service playing bingo and joining in pet therapy. In the last year, corporate volunteers from 9 different companies have given back over 300 hours of service by collecting coats, assembling new picnic tables and benches and painting mobile murals to enhance the beauty of the community.
We need your help this spring in Morristown too! Jersey Cares Day, Saturday May 3rd, we will be hosting several family friendly events in Morristown that consist of trailblazing and painting classrooms at three non-profit agencies. Opportunities to serve are still open and we look forward to seeing you at a Jersey Cares event in Morristown, NJ soon!
