• Hoboken Girl Product Drive to Benefit WomenRising {NOW Through October 16}

    If you’re looking for a way to give back this fall, look no further than our latest Hoboken Girl Helps city-wide charity event. The Hoboken Girl team is spearheading a feminine products and baby supplies drive across Hoboken to benefit WomenRising. This is being done in partnership with a group of local businesses that are serving as drop-off locations for the event. Last year, we hosted a 1-day “drive” and collected over 1000 feminine products and baby supplies. This year we’re hoping to triple — maybe quadruple — the amount. But we need your help.

    About Women Rising

    Women Rising is an amazing local non-profit organization which has been a lifeline to women and families in need of financial assistance and emotional support {due to being victims of domestic violence} for over 100 years. Many families and victims of domestic abuse living in the Hudson County region have found success while using the resources provided by the local organization.

    Since 1911, the Board of Trustees — a group primarily led by women — began to provide women and their families with access to helpful services. Some of the successful programs offered by the organization are the Domestic Violence Program, the Family Advocacy Program (FAP), and Family Support Services (FSS).

    So this month, as you head to the pharmacy or grocery store, take a few minutes to grab an extra item or two to help our cause, and drop off at any of the spots above. Together we can truly make a difference!
