Community Partnerships

Jersey Cares: TOUCH teams up weekly with the largest volunteer organization in New Jersey, which provides a steady strem of volunteers for the food pantry on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Jersey Cares boasts a data base of over 40,000 active volunteers throughout the state.

Workforce 55+: TOUCH operates in an agency relationship with the State of New Jersey in the Workforce 55+ program where low-income seniors work at the food pantry and are compensated a minimum wage to address their basic needs.

AARP NJ: Touch has been successful in establishing a solid partnership with AARP NJ wherein this state-wide organization has funded the current “Healthy Cooking for Seniors Series” and has provided extensive consultation materials for distribution at Touch’s events. TOUCH New Jersey is proud to partner with this well-respected organization for the benefit of the community.
