Sussex NJ –Your help is needed. Project Help is calling for Creativity/Brainstorming participants to develop plans for the future.
“2019 was the best year yet for Project Help but it is nothing compared to where we are going in 2020 – and we are looking for OUTSIDE TALENT to work with our board to jumpstart the new year,” Sandy Mitchell, Executive Director of Project Help said.
They are holding their first public brainstorming meeting for those willing to think outside the box, use some creativity, and share the same vision as Project Help in providing assistance to Veterans and their families. How great would it be to start the decade by volunteering your time and impacting our Veteran mission? Here is your chance to standout and have your voice heard – no idea will go unheard!
What is their Mission? Project Help is an all-volunteer, 501c3 nonprofit organization established to serve homeless and at risk Veterans with financial assistance (for qualified hardships), legal assistance, job/career placement, counseling services and more. Organizations that have supported them already: QuickChek, Crum & Forster Insurance, PSE&G, Miners Stadium, Berkeley College, IBEW, Sheet metal workers, Thorlabs, VFW, American Legion, FirstEnergy, and many more.
Where are they going in 2020? They are currently in NJ and FL, but are now expanding to NY and PA.
Your help is needed - start brainstorming now and bring your ideas to the meeting:
1) Jumpstart our footprints in NY & PA
2) Recruiting leads/suggestions?
3) Fundraising (and events) ideas?
4) Sponsor/donor connections for 2020 and beyond
5) Social Media Explosion (YouTube Channel, etc.)
6) Marketing campaign (TV, Business presence)
7) Getting volunteers from the community & businesses
8) Resources for clothing donations (and collection methods)
9) Our bus is our MVP, but we need maintenance resources – know anyone?
The kickoff meeting will be held on January 21, 2020 at 6:30pm at the Sparta VFW, 66 Main St., Sparta NJ. Plenty of parking in the back, enter through the back door as well. Refreshments will be served.
