MLK Day Collection Success!

The Volunteer Center held a collection in conjunction with the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service during the week of January 12 and it was a roaring success.  A big thank you to all who participated!

We collected items for the Bergen County Division of Veterans Services and Streetsmart Outreach in assisting homeless veterans and youth in the area. Below is a list of just some of the amazing donations made to our collection. 
  • 90 warm blankets
  • 200 sets of hats, gloves and scarves
  • 50 sweatshirts, sweatpants
  • 30 warm coats and jackets
  • $2,000 worth of toiletries
  • Sleeping bags
  • Hand and foot warmers
  • Cereal, granola bars, baby formula, soups and Ensure
  • Gift cards to local restaurants
