Each month, New Jersey Monthly features an online roundup of photos taken at various charitable events across the Garden State. We also feature a profile of a nonprofit or outstanding volunteer in the pages of the magazine each month. Check out our profile of the Camden-based Hopeworks from the August issue.
And be sure to send pictures and captions from your recent charitable event to [email protected] for possible inclusion next month!
