Project Appreciation_VSJ

Did you know that American's call 911 over 240 million times a year? First responders risk their lives every day answering these calls, and we'd like to thank them for their dedication and commitment, but we need your help to do that!

Project Appreciation, a Volunteer Center of South Jersey (VCSJ) initiative, allows members of the community to say a well-deserved “thank you” to local first responders. Volunteers will work on creating "thank you" kits benefiting local police and fire departments and other first responders.

Schools, church groups, teams and families are encouraged to register for needs as a team. Your team coordinator will receive a toolkit to complete the project. Individual volunteers may register as individuals and will receive a different toolkit for project completion. Kits will vary, but will always be easy enough to work on from your location.

Join the Volunteer Center say ‘thank-you’ every Emergency First Responder in South Jersey. We need your help! Schools, Families, Faith-based, Businesses and individuals all ages are encourage to participate. Sign-up here.

Join Crocheting For A Cause, where volunteers can work on crochet projects from home that will benefit various non-profits throughout South Jersey.
