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).
