TRUE Mentors Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement

Pledges to Raise $15,000 for program expansion in 2017

TRUE Mentors is a proud member of #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals for global philanthropy done locally. TRUE Mentors is proud to be expanding programs and engaging a growing number of Hoboken’s children. Community support has been the foundation of the organizations growth and impact. On November 29, between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, kick-off the holiday season of giving by supporting TRUE Mentors in building a bright future for Hoboken’s children.  

True Mentors is Hoboken’s only one-to-one mentoring program matching children ages 7 – 17 with adult mentors in the Mile Square City.  Our mission is to unearth each child’s potential through relationship building. Mentors become a trusted friends and champions for our children. The TRUE Mentors impact continues with weekly enrichment classes during the school year as well as Hoboken’s only paid teen internship program. Join us on #GivingTuesday and be part of unearthing the potential in the next generation.

“Last year the people of our city raised over $9,000 in 24 hours! This year we are going for double so that we can expand the high demand internship, enrichment, and mentorship programs” said Katie Eades, Executive Director of the startup non-profit. She continued “this is an opportunity for the residents of Hoboken, friends, family and local businesses to support an amazing cause and make an impact in our community.”

This year, Jack and Co., Panera, Cookie Insomina, Ben and Jerry’s, and Hudson Paperie are partnering with TRUE Mentors for Hoboken’s children. Mention TRUE Mentors and a percentage of each purchase will go towards supporting mentoring, enriching, and fostering a bright future for our community’s kids.
