One time group projects are an excellent team building opportunity for companies or to fulfill volunteer hours. Come with your family, friends, company or team, roll up your sleeves and help your community!
Annual Empower Run & Walk
Each year in September, Center For Family Services hosts an Empower Run & Walk to benefit children and families who are healing from trauma, rebuilding their lives after escaping violence, or seeking a path to recovery. Your involvement will strengthen services that change lives. Volunteers assist with various facets of the event such as setting up the course, directing traffic, registering runners, directing participants on the course, operating the snack and water stations, and cheering at the finish line!

Holiday Gift Project
Each year in December, Center For Family Services organizes our Holiday Gift Project, a donation drive that provides children and families in our programs with gifts and necessities during the holiday season. Volunteers sort and organize thousands of donated items to fulfill wish lists from the children we serve with the gifts they most want and need to celebrate the joy of the holidays. Volunteers can also organize donation drives in their workplace or community or they can provide donations by sponsor individual children and families.

Each month, Center For Family Services, along with the Food Bank of South Jersey and community residents, hosts our Hope Mobile food distribution. With food insecurity being such an issue for the children and families here in Camden City, you can join us to provide fresh and healthy foods to the families we serve. Volunteers unload, sort, and distribute food to families. Hope Mobile takes place in Camden City on the morning on the third Wednesday of every month.
Each year in August, Center For Family Services hosts Project Backpack, a donation drive that equips local students with the supplies they need to return to school prepared, confident, and ready to learn! Volunteers sort all of the donated school supplies we receive and fill new backpacks with everything students will need for the new year. Volunteers can also organize donation drives in their workplace or community to support Project Backpack. To learn more about Project Backpack, click here.
Each year in April, Center For Family Services’ SERV program hosts outreach and awareness events as an ongoing initiative to stop the spread of violence in our community. Volunteers can participate in Denim Days to take a stand against sexual violence by wearing denim on Fridays and making a $5 donation to the Denim Dollars Campaign. Volunteers can be outreach ambassadors by starting a denim dollars campaign in their office, school, or organization. To learn more about how you can participate in Stand. Speak. Empower, click here.
Building & Landscaping
Currently, we have opportunities for volunteers to participate in gardening and landscaping projects at our locations in Gloucester County. These opportunities change throughout the year. For many of these projects, we will ask volunteers to assist with providing tools or supplies for the project.
