St. Nicholas Project

Every year, the YWCA Princeton  “St. Nicholas Project” provides holiday presents to help local less fortunate families create the magic of Christmas in their own homes. Gifts are donated by community members – individuals, families and businesses alike.  Help put a smile on a child's face this holiday season.

If you would like to help make a family's holiday brighter, please contact Jill Jachera at 609-577-5123 or jill.jachera@gmail.com by December 8th, 2014.  Delivery of gifts is on Tuesday, December 16, 2014

HomeFront

The Sewing Space Open House on November 15th was well attended and made the front page of The Trenton Times.  Over $4,000 was raised for Sewing Space. Thank you for your support.

The Donation Drive on 11/8/14 was a huge success.  We collected two 20 foot U-Hauls full of household items and furniture including much needed dining room tables and chairs, dressers, end tables, clothing and household items.   A huge thank you goes out to all who donated.

HomeFront's mission is to end homelessness in Central New Jersey by harnessing the caring, resources and expertise of the community. They lessen the immediate pain of homelessness and help families become self-sufficient. HomeFront gives people skills and opportunities to ensure adequate incomes and to increase the availability of adequate affordable housing.

Drew's Hope Foundation

Drew's Hope Research Foundation was established in 2007 after the Ferrandino's received the devastating news that their five year old son, Drew, had Batten Disease.  Drew, who turned 12 in February, has gone from a child who once ran, jumped, and played to a child needing constant care.  Every day is a struggle, but Drew continues to smile regardless.

"Shave For A Cure"

Over $400,000 was raised to help fund research for pediatric cancer on October 22nd, 2014  at the NYSE.  Thank you for all of your support and generous donations. 

Since 2010, the funds raised at “Shave for A Cure” have funded numerous clinical trials and the foundation continues to make a difference each and every day through partnerships with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center NYC, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Michigan and The Ronald McDonald House NYC.

Seeds to Sew International

Seeds to Sew International, Inc is a New Jersey 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to developing educational and economic opportunities for women and girls in disadvantaged communities through education and job skills training.  Their programs not only train participants in a basic skill, they also provide training in the basics of business management such as cash management, opening/balancing/reconciling a bank account, accessing loans to grow a business, and record keeping. We also educate participants about local laws and their basic rights, as well as the rights of their children, so that they can advocate for themselves and find support when needed as their income and stature in their community grows.
