Mary’s Story:
“I wanted to help young children prepare for school, so I visited a child care center and helped to make reading fun for the kids there.”

Bob’s Story:
“The older residents in my neighborhood are finding it harder and harder to keep up with the maintenance where they live. I asked a few of my neighbors to join me, and we mowed lawns, raked leaves and did a little painting.”

Paula’s Story:
“It really doesn’t take much time to help someone. There’s a woman living on my street who can’t handle the garbage cans, so I drag them out to the curb once a week. It’s no big deal but I guess it helps her out.”

United Way of Central Jersey (UWCJ) works to advance the common good by creating opportunities for a better life. This is achieved by mobilizing people, organizations and resources to create lasting change through volunteerism, partnerships, services and advocacy.

By recognizing people who volunteer to help others, UWCJ hopes to encourage more of our neighbors to take action and join the effort to improve conditions where we live and work. By reaching out a hand to help one person, we can improve life for us all. For more information, please contact Charmaine Rodriguez at 732 247-3727
