1Day Hoboken: April 17th
An interesting one-day “community volunteer” event organized by the Hoboken Grace Community Church. Sounds like a pretty good idea by gathering a bunch of people together to help out with many manageable tasks in just a few hours. Organizers should meet up at Church Square Park (not Sinatra park – as this pamphlet incorrectly had stated…) Hopefully the expected rainy weather holds off!
200 Volunteers, 20 Projects: One Day!
1Day Hoboken is a massive community volunteer event on Saturday, April 17th aimed at making Hoboken better. That morning volunteers will gather together at Church Square Park at 10am, then split into groups and work together on various projects throughout Hoboken that are requested by community organizations and the city itself. Each project will be completed by 2 PM and the volunteers will come back together to celebrate what was accomplished in just one day! This event is a great chance to connect with community organizations, make a difference in our city, and have some fun working alongside our neighbors! Sign up at www.1dayhoboken.com!
We’ll be doing projects for the following organizations:
Jubilee Center — Boys and Girls Club of Hoboken — Hoboken Public Parks — Hoboken Public Schools — In Jesus’ Name Charities — HOPES — Hoboken Housing Authority — Hoboken Shelter — Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps
The projects include cleaning up the parks and other community spaces, painting lobbies for the Hoboken Housing Authority, refinishing indoor spaces in the Jubilee Center, organizing the local food pantry, and more!
At the moment, we have over 50 people signed up, but based on past events, we’re anticipating a lot more, as most people sign up during the week immediately prior to an event.
