Three years ago, Kara had an idea that brought the spirit of giving to dozens of people and provided gifts to about 25 families in Hoboken.

So Fitting

By 1 p.m. last Sunday, craft time was over in Grace Kids. The Play-Doh, crayons and construction paper had been packed up.

1Day, Countless Ways You Made a Difference

We'll never know exactly how many people were impacted by 1Day Hoboken, but you can see the difference you made in our city. The parks, waterfront and schools are cleaner.

And across the city, organizations such as The Hoboken Shelter and In Jesus' Name Charities are now stocked with the 10,000 meals you helped package.

"I just kind of showed up and didn't know what to expect, but thought that it would be a great opportunity to get to know people.”
