As part of New Jersey 101.5’s ongoing effort to give back to our communities, we are asking our listeners to help us assist needy families throughout the state of New Jersey with our annual Family Adoption Program.

New Jersey 101.5 personalities are asking listeners to share the holiday spirit with various families from transitional and battered family shelters. The families are anonymously coded to protect their privacy.
