Community Outreach

 

The New Jersey Relocation Community Outreach Program mission is to inspirit our community through charitable giving to advance the

common good. Our vision is to bring awareness and opportunities to charitable organizations to educate and inspire our membership. 

Our program has sponsored and donated to local and global charitable foundations. Through our membership's generosity and our sponsors,

we have organized fundraisers in support of; United Way, Family Promise of Morris County, Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County,

the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross.  

 

 

The Bag Project

 

NJRC is proud to work with charitable New Jersey-based organization, The Bag Project. The organizations mission is to provide infants and children in crisis with desperately needed emergency bags filled with basic necessities and comfort items via their partner organizations including the NJ Department of Children and Family Division of Child Protection and Permanency, Homefront, Anchor House and more. It is noteworthy to mention that as part of standard operating procedure, DCP&P brings these emergency bags with them when they have to retrieve an infant or child from an unsafe environment.  Donations make a direct impact and you will have the opportunity to make a difference by making a financial contribution or by donating items needed for The Bag Project.  The committee is collecting needed items as listed below during our Fall Conference and you are also invited to volunteer your time to prepare these bags with the organization.  You will have the opportunity at our Fall Conference to signup for two separate dates which NJRC will be sponsoring.  The dates and times are listed below.  The Bag Project and NJRC are committed to making a meaningful positive impact in our local communities, and we look forward joining the effort!
