Ways to Volunteer & Donate


• Day of Caring – Bring your organization to one of our sites and help us keep it looking great. You can help with minor maintenance projects such as painting, gardening, or organizing our storage areas. You can also spend the day helping to assist the teachers in our preschool classrooms, playing kickball with our afterschool programs, teaching children computer skills, etc. Some of our partners that participate in our Day of Caring programs are Bristol Myers Squibb, Janssen, Ernst & Young and UPS. To find out more about this idea, email Tom Mladenetz at tom@cyomercer.org.


• Holiday Parties – Throughout the year we host carnivals and parties for our kids: Summer Camp Carnival, Halloween Carnival, Visit from Santa, Easter Egg Hunt, etc. Volunteers are needed to help keep special events a yearly tradition. Financial contributions are also accepted to ensure that the kids have the best time possible. To find out more about this idea, email Pat Hardiman at phardiman@cyomercer.org.


• Surprise Events – All kids love parties, but they especially love surprise parties for no reason. Whether it is an ice cream party in the summertime or a pizza party during the school year, any type of surprise will leave our kids with a memory that will keep them reminiscing for years. To find out more about this idea, email Pat Hardiman at phardiman@cyomercer.org.


• Toy Drive – The Christmas season is always an exciting time for kids and a busy time for adults. Help us reach our goal of a Christmas present for every kid in our programs by hosting a toy drive at your work or with your family and friends. To find out more about this idea, email Pat Hardiman at phardiman@cyomercer.org.


• Backpack Drive – Whether it is the beginning of summer or the beginning of the school year, backpacks are always useful for our kids. Fill them with notebooks, pencils, and folders or a towel, sunscreen lotion, and a water bottle, a backpack drive would be a great help to our families. To find out more about this idea, email John Soss at jsoss@cyomercer.org.


• Sponsor a Team/Gym Banners – With each changing season brings around a different sports league. And with each sports league brings the need for team sponsorships. With tee-ball, soccer, and basketball leagues offered at many of our sites, there is always a need for a team sponsor. For a nominal cost, this is great advertising for your business with your business’ name on each shirt. We also have a gym banner sponsorship program whereby your business name is viewed year-round by thousands of people going through our facilities. To find out more about this idea, email dbossio@cyomercer.org


• Volunteer Coach – Every team also needs a coach to help get them through the season. Regardless of your experience level, help is always needed to teach our kids the joys of being on a team at all of our sites that host pee-wee leagues. To find out more about this idea, email rdonaldson@cyomercer.org


• Food Drive – The CYO operates a Food Pantry out of our Bromley Center site. We distribute boxes of food every Tuesday and Thursday to the needy families in Hamilton Township that are registered with us. Once a month a delivery of food is brought to the Center from a Food Distribution Center in Vineland, New Jersey. All donations compliment the delivered food and adds to our stock that is needed, especially around the holidays. To find out more about this idea, email phardiman@cyomercer.org.

A photo of the recently completed Marquee.  This project replaced the Historic, 40 year old information and message board that has been a landmark in Trenton since it was installed.  The bright blue neon lights that shine at night are memorable to motorists and pedestrians.  The restoration was started after cracks and deficiencies throughout the Marquee started to appear.  The new Marquee serves the same purpose, to provide light outside the CYO Center, to keep visitors dry from rain and inclement weather, and to provide information about the CYO Programs to those passing by.

A photo of the CYO Center gymnasium and it's newly completed light project. This major renovation of the installation of new light fixtures replaced the 1964 original light fixtures, which no longer met the NJ Department of Environmental Protection code.  Some new fixtures were installed, and a fresh coat of paint was given to the ceiling to further improve the gym. The new fixtures are highly energy efficient.  Thousands of children use the CYO Center gym yearly through 10 Programs offered here.

 

CYO students pose for a picture in front of the newly purchases bus.  The recently completed fundraising project helped purchase a 2011 Ford 29 passenger bus that will transport CYO students and campers to and from field trips and pick ups for the After School Program.  This vehicle is a great addition to our fleet serving multiple programs and needs.
