Volunteer – Be the change

HomeFront runs on volunteerism. And one of our more rewarding challenges is to channel the compassion, energy and spirit of people who want to make a meaningful donation of time and talent. Whether you have a creative mind, good people skills, teaching talent, special know-how, a strong back or a gift for organization, HomeFront needs you. Our menu of volunteer opportunities will give you some idea of the kind of help we need. But our needs are on-going and ever-changing. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (609) 989-9417 ext. 137 or email getinvolved@homefrontnj.org for more information.

College Hunks Hauling and Moving

A big “Thank You” to Jim Gabriel and his amazing crew at College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving, for coming to the rescue during the holidays! They volunteered and helped deliver furniture to HomeFront families, so our truck could pick up Christmas gifts for those 3,000 kids whose Christmas Wishes were fulfilled this year.

Front Door for HomeFront

High school senior, Jack Paley, started “FrontDoor for HomeFront” as an easy way for his neighbors to donate toiletries and food to our families. On the third Saturday of every month, his neighbors leave donations on their front steps, which Jack picks up and delivers to us. Thank you Jack!
