June 8 - Project Humanize. NJ Beam Team. The Covenant House.

Yes. I know. It is August 12 and more than 2 months since we had an absolutely incredible day with the NJ Beam Team and the Covenant House. BUT! I assure you, it has nothing to do with lack of interest; but rather, everything to do with our lives getting a wee bit out of hand. I broke my foot – left my job – and started a new job. Additionally, Alexa took on ANOTHER, which barely leaves her enough time to sleep.

So…without further ado, here is insight into the awesomeness that happens when 3 altruistic groups of people get together to make a difference. And in true Project Humanize Fashion, the best way to do this is thru images.

Education

Nancy Gross from The Covenant House takes the time to explain the organizations mission. 


Helping

Each year The Covenant House hosts a very large fundraiser. We were honored to be able to take some stress off of the CH team by helping them prepare for their yearly "Night of Broadway Stars" Gala!

In short: we are beyond honored to have "hosted" the Jim Beam Team's day of volunteering and am very thankful for the relationship that we have developed with The Covenant House.
