Ways to Give Back in Your Community

Blog / December 1, 2016

With everything that is going on in our world today and with the upcoming holiday season, you may be feeling the need to become more involved in our community!  As opportunities arise, we will update this list! Please feel free to send submissions to admin@vanessapollock.com.

Please scroll through these links/posters to find opportunities to meet your giving goals:


Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges: Looking for ways to help over the holidays? Visit our Help for Holidays page to volunteer for our Holiday Distribution on Dec 21st. All volunteers must register in advance. Register Here.  

Maplewood PD – Toy Drive:  The Maplewood Police Department PBA Local #44 and SOA Local #44A are currently conducting a Toy Drive for underprivileged children in the area. We are accepting donations for unwrapped age appropriate toys and have placed collection boxes at the following locations: Maplewood Town Hall – 574 Valley Street, Maplewood PD – 1618 Springfield Avenue, Toys will be collected on Friday, December 19, 2014.  Please contact Det. Reeves (PBA Secretary) at 973-761-7922 or sreeves@twp.maplewood.nj.us if you have any questions.

To meet the need in the community, the South Mountain YMCA must raise an additional $20,000 before the end of the year. Can you help? Click here to donate. In addition to its highly respected daycare/preschool, the Y offers sports, family activities, camps and more — all at low cost or in same cases, free of charge. Everything they do is with one goal in mind: to give kids, teens, and adults – of all ages and backgrounds – a better chance to reach their full potential. As they say, “lives are changed every day at the Y.” At this challenging time in our country, many are asking how THEY can help and step in to make a real difference in their own backyards. Supporting the South Mountain YMCA is a direct way to lend your support to children in your own community. (To Read More…)
