Once again, New Jersey 101.5 is launching its effort to give back to our communities — helping families in need this holiday season — but we need your help.

We’re bringing back our Family Adoption Program as a gift card collection drive.  Gift cards will be collected at all New Jersey 101.5 events from Nov. 12 thru Dec. 17, Access Self Storage Locations and special Family Adoption events at retail locations.  For a list of event locations, click here.

Gift cards to all major retailers and grocery stores are appreciated, including Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, Shoprite, Acme, Stop & Shop and Amazon.com.

Your donation will directly benefit local, New Jersey based non profit organizations throughout the state including:

Atlantic City Rescue Mission: Meets the physical, emotional and other basic needs through shelter, clothing, food, counselling and more for the poor and those who are bound and bruised by addictive lifestyles in Atlantic City and surrounding communities

Safe & Sound Somerset: Mission is to empower survivors of domestic abuse and engage the community to break the cycle of violence.

Middlesex Catholic Charities, Ozanam Family Shelter & New Brunswick Catholic Charities Shelter: Provides shelter for single women and families. While living in the shelter, program residents work with case managers to improve their earning capacity and obtain permanent housing.

180 Turning Lives Around:  A charity empowering Monmouth County families affected by domestic violence and sexual assault find the courage and strength to turn their lives around. 180 support families through 24/7 helplines and counseling, legal advocacy, emergency shelter and transitional housing as well as art, play and music therapy for children. Often times our families are in unfortunate economic situations and the holidays are an especially difficult time due to their circumstances and hardships. Please help us provide holiday cheer for our families in need by contributing a gift card to help make their holiday special. Gift cards from the following stores are welcomed and appreciated: Shoprite, Foodtown, Stop n Shop, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Marshalls, & TJ Maxx.

Safe in Hunterdon: Mission is to cultivate safety, empowerment and healing in an alliance with the adults, teens and children affected by domestic and sexual violence while mobilizing the community to promote social change that will reduce power-based violence, control and oppression.

AIDS Resource Foundation for Children: Helping individuals, children, and families who are impacted by HIV/AIDS or are faced with other social and health-related barriers to be resilient and to build healthier futures.
