You are a vital partner in Norwescap’s work to support our neighbors and build resiliency in our communities!
This year has brought enormous challenges for so many of us, and it has been especially difficult for the individuals and families we serve. But through your support of our efforts to transform poverty into opportunity, you are helping thousands of our neighbors in New Jersey – families with low income; essential workers; single parents struggling to balance employment and childcare – navigate the pandemic and its ripple effects, and move towards stability and self-sufficiency. Together, we will create real and lasting change for more than 30,000 New Jersey residents in the year to come.
Your gift today creates opportunity for someone in need tomorrow!

Ways To Get Involved
Whether its sorting donated food items at the food bank, calling isolated seniors citizens once a week to keep them active and engaged, helping low-income residents prepare their tax returns, helping to organize a fundraising event, reading to Head Start classrooms, or some other valuable activity —volunteerism is an essential source of power for Norwescap.

Norwescap welcomes Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and other places of worship as well as schools, corporations, civic groups and others to help with volunteer projects.
