• Our Breakfast Food Donation Drive + Happy Hour {Happening January 30, 2019}

    Written by:

    Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, when access to breakfast foods are limited, starting off the day on the right foot is difficult.

    Family Promise of Hudson County and The Jubilee Center, two local non-profits in the area have shared with us that they’re desperately in need of breakfast items for the children in both of their programs — so Hoboken Girl Helps is kicking off the year of service with a happy hour to collect supplies.

    Join Hoboken Girl Helps at The Shepherd and the Knucklehead {1313 Willow Avenue} on Wednesday, January 30th from 5:30-9:30PM for our breakfast food donation drive fundraiser. Bring non-perishable breakfast food items to donate, and stay for happy hour specials at The Shep!

    The event is free and you’re welcome to stop by at any time between 5:30PM-9:30 PM, however, all attendees are asked to bring non-perishable, individual portion breakfast foods {i.e. granola bars, individual cereals, oatmeal packages, dried fruit, individual fruit juices, nuts/trail mix, etc.}. We’ll be collecting them throughout the night and donating to both non-profits.

    Donations will not only benefit these excellent organizations but will also score attendees ½ off appetizers and happy hour drink specials all night at The Shep.

    The Jubilee Center

    All Saints Community Service and Development Corporation (ASCSDC) was created by the All Saints Episcopal Parish as a non-sectarian, non-profit organization in 1995 to serve low-income families living in Hoboken’s public housing community. ASCSDC’s mission is to equip low-income children and families with the tools needed not only to survive but also to overcome the many barriers they face and to thrive in all areas of life. ASCSDC’s flagship program is The Jubilee Center in Hoboken. The Jubilee Center’s year-round programs include academic enrichment and support, sports, fitness, and nutritional programs, and programs that connect children to arts, culture, and music to inspire and expand their world view. We are aiming to help them gather more breakfast items so that they are able to feed more children in their breakfast programs.

    Jordan and Joelle are true Jersey Girls. Originally hailing from down the shore in Hazlet, NJ, the girls made their "rite of passage" move to Hoboken a few short years after graduating with degrees in Communications from Loyola University. Outside of their 9-5 as senior publishers in NYC, the twins can be found walking their yorkie-poo Chica, working out at the best hot yoga studios, or trying out the best restaurants in town. Like many 20-somethings, Jordan and Joelle are balling on a budget and know how to score the best deals around town!
