HFA Jubilee Center Birthday Parties

Homework Club Birthday Parties

The HFA Philanthropy Committee is working with the Jubilee Center to provide birthday parties for less privileged children. Every year, the HFA has given over $3,000 to the Jubilee Center for this cause.  The Jubilee Center is an after school program offering snacks, homework help, enrichment activities, dinner and tutoring, to approximately 100 children, ages 5 through 12, living in Hoboken's public housing neighborhood.

The Jubilee Center receives support from All Saints Community Service & Development Corporation and is located at 601 Jackson Street.

One Friday afternoon per month during the school year, the Philanthropy committee provides a birthday party for the members of the Jubilee Kids, including a cake, a special activity such as a game or arts and crafts project, and a gift certificate for each birthday child that month.

Help us make birthdays special for the Jubilee Kids by volunteering and/or donating to this project! Donations of party supplies (including plates, napkins, cups and decorations), arts and crafts supplies, as well as home-baked cupcakes or cake are needed for each party. Volunteers are always needed to assist at the parties. To participate in this project, please contact Cindy Altberger at Caltberger@nullgmail.com or 917-576-7024 (cell).
