For 35 years, The Hoboken Shelter has offered food, shelter and supportive services to those in need in Hoboken. They’ve served more than 2 million meals and have moved people from the streets to the shelter to a home of their own.
I have committed to fundraising (INSERT DEFAULT GOAL) for the Hoboken Shelter, an organization dedicated to helping the homeless in my community. With only $2, they can provide a nutritious meal to one person. I want to them them feed (INSERT #) people.

Your friendship and support mean a lot to me,
