I enjoy volunteering it is extremely rewarding . Everyone works together for a common goal and that is to help the community
For many years I donated massive amounts of new school supplies which TASK volunteers placed in backpacks for students. I was so disturbed at how supplies were divided, I quit donating cold turkey. Volunteers Just literally threw whole packages of several large erasers, scissors, etc., in ONE backpack, time after time, rather than separating the items for maximum effect and use. Quite upsetting.
Hi Peggy, I'm very sorry that this happened and I have spoken with the appropriate staff members and we will monitor this more closely in the future. If you would like, I'd really like to hear talk and hear more about your experience. Please Contact me, J Steinhauer, Development Coordinator at 609 695 5456 ext 108.
The individuals working at TASK are dedicated to what they do, helping the communities overlooked members. Despite being a soup kitchen, they offer programs in self-enrichment, like a tutoring program to help people get GEDs, a music program, and an art program to provide an outlet for expression.
Volunteering here is a great experience overall. You can contribute in many ways.
The workers at this organization were really helpful with my future education, talent and volunteer work.
The tutors also were very helpful and on top of that breakfast is amazing as well as lunch. I obtain my GED/High School Diploma and made some good friends along the way. Thanks everyone for your support. Awesomeness! I would also like to thank "Richard" my tutor for long hours of work, we did it.
Volunteering at TASK was such a great experience for me. I assisted with prepping and serving food for the community, and everyone I came in contact with was so appreciative and grateful. TASK taught me that volunteering is not a job, but an outlet to express and release love for your fellow man/woman. Without a doubt, I will show up at TASK as often as possible to help them with their goal of reaching out to as many people as possible.
TASK has always been my place of choice to volunteer my time and to donate items. Without fail, whenever I stopped by, the staff always greeted me with the utmost respect and in the friendliest manner. Any task that TASK needed my help with (helping with serving and cleaning), always made me feel like I received just as much love and appreciation as I and the organization provided to the community.
Immediately walking into TASK, I felt blessed and honored to be part of this organization. Literally everyone greeted me with a smile and a "Thank You" for showing up to assist with their remarkable cause. In just one day TASK made such a positive impression on me that I personally vowed to volunteer on a scheduled basis. I can honestly say that volunteering at TASK feels more like getting together with family, for a great time, and not work at all.
TASK is a great place with amazing people. I will always volunteer with TASK, when time allows, because it starts with the employees. It is very apparent that each employee you come in contact with is dedicated to TASK and to helping their patrons become exceptional members of society. While tutoring at TASK, I met one gentleman who had a daughter the same age as me and it was through our experience he remembered that he needed to call her for her birthday the following week. This brief experience while tutoring was mutually beneficial because while I was helping him with math, he was helping me become an even more well-rounded person who really felt that I was making a difference in his life. Furthermore, the patrons at TASK are SO multi-talented. I am excited to see where this organization will be within the next few years. Keep up the Great WORK!
I have donated several times to TASK and every time I drop off they are extremely friendly and appreciative. My husband and I "adopted" a family for the holidays last year and when we went to drop off the presents for the family that we chose, we were greeted by a very professional and friendly staff that gave us a tour of the facility and explained all of their programs. What they do there is wonderful and we look forward to many more years of donating!
TASK is an amazing place! Our program has had the privilege of becoming one on their sites outside of the city of Trenton. The quality of the meals that they provide is outstanding--our clients look forward to lunch every day and for many of them it is their best meal of the day. The staff is very caring and professional. They have also shared donations with our clients ranging from hygiene kits to special deserts. Please consider supporting TASK!
