Join us in supporting our local refugee neighbors by downloading one of these signs, taking a selfie, and posting it to social media with the hashtag #hellojcneighbor!
On October 1, 2016, Gramforacause and EIGHTY teamed up to help raise funds for nonprofit Church World Service (CWS) and celebrate the diversity of our community including our refugee neighbors.
We got to know our neighbors, learned more about the refugee crisis and CWS efforts, and what we can do to help.
We raised a total of over $2,700 dollars support the CWS chapter in Jersey City, surpassing our initial goal of $2,000. These proceeds will help the chapter expand their services for newly arrived families in the area.
Snacks and refreshments were provided by local vendors Fox & Crow, Roman Nose, Garden Steaks, and Milk Sugar Love. Photobooth was hosted by Pursuit of Portraits. Raffle prizes provided by Mana Wine, JC Ballroom, Laura Hipfit, Lourdes of the Vine, and more!
