“S” Family Information – Family Adoption

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

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 listed below and are anonymously coded to protect their privacy.

 All donated items must be new and unwrapped. Gift cards are strongly suggested. Home decorations, blankets and cleaning supplies will also be welcome gifts.

Call the New Jersey 101.5 Family Adoption Hotline at (609) 771-4109 to adopt one or more families. We also encourage groups or businesses to adopt families.

Gift cards can be mailed to: New Jersey 101.5’s Family Adoption at 109 Walters Avenue, Trenton, NJ 08638. New Jersey 101.5 listeners can drop off their donated items to participating Lackland Self Storage locations throughout New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.
