Alternate Giving

The holidays are a time of giving. This year, wouldn’t it be nice to cut back on shopping and focus on the reason for the season? If finding that perfect gift for the ones you love is a challenge, give them the gift that always fits, always is in style, and will be re-gifted in the best possible way. Consider giving the gift of a donation. Honor a loved one, surprise a friend who has everything, or teach a child the value of sharing good fortune. Make a donation in their name to LSMNJ and know that this gift will be just right—providing others with meaningful gifts that bring comfort and joy well beyond Dec. 25. Re-gifted through one of LSMNJ’s diverse services or programs, donations of any size can make a real difference.

New Visions Homeless Day Shelter

$25

It’s getting cold out there.

As the bite of the winter wind whips through Camden, New Visions Homeless Day Shelter provides a safe, warm place to rest and be nourished for those without a place to call home. Your gift funds a day’s worth of services for one New Visions’ guest—including two meals (breakfast and lunch), laundry and shower facilities, a clothing closet, and social service referrals.

To support New Visions, at the dollar amount of your choice, please go to our Donate page and select “New Visions Homeless Day Shelter” in the “Designation” dropdown menu.

LSMNJ Immigration and Refugee Service

$100

Imagine what it feels like to be a stranger in a strange land.

It’s a daily reality for many who utilize our Immigration and Refugee Services, based in Trenton. It’s all the more isolating for those who come from non-English speaking countries. Your gift provides an English as a Second Language (ESL) student with some of the tools needed to be understood and thrive in this strange new world—an ESL textbook, workbook, and picture dictionary.

Lutheran Crossings Enhanced Living at Moorestown

$200

The comforts of home are something we often take for granted.

For the older adults who reside at Lutheran Crossings Enhanced Living, Moorestown--whether for temporary rehabilitative services, living assistance, or healthcare—a bit of “home” can go a long way. Your gift to the LCEL Good Samaritan Fund can provide a resident in need with some comfort items like a cozy chair, a television, or an extra warm blanket to stave off the chill.

LSMNJ Disaster Recovery

$500

After a disaster, finding that “new normal” is a long and difficult process.

Three years after SuperStorm Sandy devastated parts of New Jersey, many families are still struggling to reconstruct their lives. Your gift can put the finishing touches on the renovated/rebuilt home of a Sandy survivor—a new front door, washer or dryer, table and chairs, or a restocked food pantry.
