I love being a part of the JCC of Somerset, Hunterdon & Warren Counties.
I have worked at the JCC for over 20 years. One thing that makes working at the J so special is being a part of something bigger....
The programming at the J serves children, seniors, and the special needs population as well as those looking for general fitness and recreation. For me, it's not just about showing up and crunching numbers everyday.....it's the opportunity to serve lunch to the seniors.... or to take time to talk to an intern in our special needs department.... or to help at camp with color wars, canteen or dismissal.
During the Covid crisis, it has been about serving our members through virtual programming. It is about serving our community by partnering with the local food banks to help collect, store and deliver food to those in need. The JCC has been a strong support to so many people and families.
In this year of uncertainty, our community members, staff and board members have been tested like never before. Our primary focus is to continue the vital services the JCC provides for many years to come. We are in pursuit of much-needed funding to continue our mission. We have a group of donors who will MATCH any funds we raise in the next 72 hours, up to a total of $200,000. We could have over $400,000 if we get to that number.
Every little bit helps. Your $18 becomes $36. Your $50 becomes $100. Please view the short video above and click on the DONATE link in the top right of this page to make a tax-deductible donation before Friday, October 30.
