The TCNJ Here for Home Campaign has taken on several initiatives across campus and throughout the state. Please see the information below to learn more about each initiative.
The TCNJ Here for Home Campaign is constantly looking for volunteer opportunities throughout the state to bring members of the TCNJ community to during the week and on the weekends. As much as possible, the Bonner Center and campaign will provide transportation to these efforts, however, there are constraints on the resources available. Volunteer opportunities are posted in the Campaign Needs section of the website and emails are sent out to the Here for Home Volunteer Mailing List. To sign up to receive these emails, you can fill out the following form: http://bit.ly/VLndRD.
To see some of the past volunteer projects, check out the News section of the website.
The TCNJ Here for Home Campaign has partnered with the Student Government and TCNJ Dining Services to set up a Point Donation Drive on campus. TCNJ students and staff can make a donation at any TCNJ Dining register throughout campus. Donations will be used to purchase food and supplies for residents in areas affected by the storm. TCNJ Dining Services is also accepted donations of canned food and dry goods as well as essential cleaning supplies.
