250 Sets of NEW Hats & Gloves still needed

Christmas in the City will take place in just a few weeks. This year we celebrate 15 years of our partnership with Tilly’s Kids, who is always able to find the schools that need the most help during the holiday season.
There are 4 schools in Newark that will get a special deliScarfGuys2very of toys, books, and some hats & gloves for the cold weather-that’s over 800 kids!
Thanks to our corporate Sponsors like Brazil Brothers who are collecting toys on our behalf and many of the local families that get together and purchase the items themselves.
As of our most recent count though we are still short approximately 250 new sets of hats and gloves for the boys and girls of a preschool we are delivering to. If you would like to donate these items please drop them off at our offices at 60 Blue Heron Road, Suite 100, Sparta, NJ.
All deliveries to the school will take place during 12/17-2/22 so we are asking for all items to be delivered to our offices by 12/15.
Any questions please contact Lorena Sergent at or by calling our office at 973-726-9777 x232.
With much gratitude from all of us at Pass It Along- Have a great holiday season!

COMPADRES Volunteer Leader Needed ASAP

Volunteer PIA
We have been lucky to have an AMAZING volunteer leader for the last few years for our COMPADRES programs. Unfortunately, she will no longer be able to lead our teens during the evenings for this program.
Please share this with anyone you think might be interested in learning more about this great volunteer leadership role.
Simply Sign Up to have Bob Jones, our Director of Programs, get back to you to discuss the details of the program.

Program Summary:

Compadres is a mentorship initiative that gets young volunteers to work with children from low-income families from the Pathways 2 Prosperity program. The evening is broken down into two groups and can be led by two separate individuals.
During the first part of the program “Homework Helpers at Compadres” from 5pm to 5:45pm, teen volunteers assist children with homework or school projects.
During the second part of the program “Compadres” runs from 5:45pm to 8:15pm. Teen volunteers will get involved in mentoring, reading books, educational games and more.

Thanks for “Passing It Along”!
