You can help support the Hoboken Homeless Shelter by becoming a FUN-draiser!
(And we're making it easy with a downloadable PDF toolkit linked at the bottom of this page.)
The Hoboken Shelter needs you now more than ever. Every year, the HoBOOken 5K Halloween Run raises nearly $100,000 to keep the most vulnerable members of our community fed and safe. Our programs have real impact and help get our neighbors off of the streets and into our Shelter where they can get the services they urgently need.
Start by creating your custom Fundraising Page.
Note: You do not have to register or be a runner in the race to participate in the fundraising contest!
Reach out to your family, friends, colleagues, and others in your networks to help you reach your fundraising goal.
Sample note to solicit donations:
Did you know? 95% of the guests who eat and sleep at the Hoboken Homeless Shelter are residents of Hoboken who have lost their homes?
For 40 years, The Hoboken Homeless Shelter has offered food, shelter and supportive services to our neighbors in Hoboken. Services include:
And in 2022, they have successfully moved 231 people who came into the Shelter from the streets and into permanent homes of their own. They are ending homelessness in Hoboken at a rate of 4 people a week!
It doesn't take much to make an impact — it costs just $2 to provide a nutritious meal for one person. I want to help the hungry and homeless by raising [$XXX] — which will provide meals for [XXX / 2] people!
Please help me reach my goal by making a donation today at [link to fundraising page].
Thank you for your support,
Prizes will be awarded to our top individual and team fundraisers!
