Strike Out Hunger
Strike Out Hunger was held by the United Way of Greater Mercer County on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 at Grounds for Sculpture. The goal was reached as we successfully prepared 75,000 oatmeal breakfasts that were distributed by 3 food banks in New Jersey. Each package will provide 8 servings to children with food insecurity in Mercer, Monmouth/Ocean counties and South Jersey. The Camp Fire NJ team partnered with United Way and 330 volunteers to help Strike Out Hunger!
"Ignite the Fire"
Camp Fire NJ hosted “Ignite the Fire,” a cocktail party and fundraiser event, attended by 100 community members who worked to raise money to help children find their “spark,” or their unique passion, and thrive in a world full of everyday challenges. This event honored three of Camp Fire’s most influential “Spark Champions,” Jodie Glenn, Nell Geiger, and Penny Cox. The event also recognized Camp Fire NJ’s very first Teens in Action group, “Teens On Fire.” Con Brio, Hopewell Valley Central High School’s student led acappella group contributed to the event by volunteering their time and voices through an inspirational performance. With the support of New Jersey’s leaders in education and the surrounding community, Camp Fire NJ is able to continue its mission to provide educational programs that empower children with life tools and social skills to face everyday challenges and thrive!
