Ewing, NJ – On Monday, December 11, New Jersey Department of Education Commissioner Kimberley Harrington and Department staff delivered gifts, coloring books and crayons to 100 children from 39 families at HomeFront.

Since its inception over 25 years ago, HomeFront has worked to break the cycle of poverty and end homelessness in Central New Jersey, serving thousands of Mercer County families. In the past year alone, almost 14,000 heads of households walked through their front door looking for help. Started by volunteers providing meals for families without a stable home, HomeFront has since developed a holistic array of services for clients who are either homeless or at high risk of becoming so. For more information about HomeFront visit their website.

Below are photos and captions of the Season of Service event that are available for public use.
