BENEFITING: ST JOSEPH SOCIAL SERVICE CENTER
As most of you know, in the last year I picked up and left my family and friends in NJ. I moved to a state I've only ever vacationed in; and I only knew one person in the area. Since then I've experienced an amazing change in my life. I am so incredibly blessed and amazed every day at the life I now live, the job I love, the family and friends I have.
In about a month I will celebrate my 37th birthday! Ever since I was a little girl I've loved birthdays and cards and balloons and ribbons and guessing what presents I'm going to get.
This year, I'm going to tell you all what I want.
This year has been amazing and I have everything I've ever wanted. So for my birthday this year, let's all give to people in need.
The Saint Joseph Social Service Center in Elizabeth NJ helps the homeless and near homeless with food, education, medications, basic needs and emotional support. They have a food pantry, soup kitchen, classes in computers, math, basic skills and English. They have a program where inner city kids get to go to camp in the summer. They support families in the area and the people who work and volunteer there are among the most dedicated and humble I have ever known.
I have everything I never knew I always wanted, so this year, don't spend money on a card or a stamp or a present for me, please make a donation for those who are most vulnerable and most in need!
