The Gem Project had a busy Thanksgiving this year! We were able to volunteer with FP Youthoutcry Foundation at their 3rd annual “Break Bread With You” ceremony. It was a time to directly give back to Newark, NJ by offering meals from 9 AM – 1 PM on Thanksgiving, November 24, 2011. The founder, Al-Tariq Best, did an excellent job! Many of our community friends held their own own events to support families in need during the holidays. See what AngelaCARES, FP Youthoutcry, and Communities In Schools New Jersey (CISNJ) did below:
