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.

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"

This wonderful event on Wednesday, October 22nd raises much needed funds for pediatric cancer research. 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.   Last year, this event raised over $200,000.

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.
