​Holiday gifts for the families of St. Joseph’s Home

Every day is a struggle for homeless women and their children, but the holidays can be a particularly difficult time given their lack of resources. JLL helps bring joy to this time of year by purchasing gifts for the families in residence at St. Joseph’s Home in Jersey City, NJ. Each December, JLL New York employees “adopt” a child or family staying in this shelter, which not only provides a safe place to live, but also helps residents take concrete steps to create more permanent housing and employment situations. Toys, clothes and other necessities given to these families have communicated JLL’s commitment to the regional community for more than 20 years.

​Book Drive for St. Joseph’s Home

In addition to donating gifts for each member of the families staying at St. Joseph’s Home in Jersey City, JLL employees this year also participated in a book drive that netted almost 300 new and gently used children’s and grown-up’s books for the shelter’s library. This massive outpouring will significantly enhance St. Joseph’s current facility and provide a wealth of new resources for promoting reading and growing imaginations.
