And the world will live as one ..

Our last group that helped us empty the volunteer facility on Easter!  Thank you Keene Ladies!

With the energy, vibrance, and enthusiasm of over 450 volunteers, we were able to raise the spirit of multiple communities, bring hope to residents, and jumpstart the organization and volunteer intake process of several distribution and relief centers.  
We are grateful for the opportunity to show communities what the young generation has to offer with their teamwork and positivity.
Through the relationships made amongst each other, with homeowners, and with organizations, our volunteers and the communities of New Jersey remind each other that we are all oneTogether, we can be resilient through difficult times and be the hope of light in brighter days ahead.

Thank you to all of our wonderful Project Partners and all those that contributed to and supported us through this journey in New Jersey for our Superstorm Sandy Relief Efforts!
Community Collaborations International and all of our volunteers have had such a pleasure contributing to your cause!
