Past Opportunities

Evening of Promise Building a Better Future Together.png

Our Fall event, An Evening of Promise: Bridging a Better Future Together, was a celebratory fundraiser cocktail party honoring our Board Member Sister Georgette Gavioli's 29 years of service at St. Aloysius. The proceeds funded the general operating cost of our shelter locations. The celebration took place Thursday, October 28th, from 6:00-8:30 p.m. at Grace Van Vorst Church in Jersey City. Each tax deductible ticket was priced at $65.75, the cost for one day of keeping our shelters open that temporarily house our homeless families. Our goal was to raise enough funds via tickets, journal advertisements and sponsorships to cover our shelter operating costs for one year.

 

Would you have been willing to help us with our event to help keep our families sheltered?

 

We were happily accepting volunteers and would find a way to make use of your skills, no matter what they were.

If you are interested in any opportunities like this one, please contact Alyssa Lopez, our Research Director, at a.lopez@familypromisehudsoncounty.org
