Did you know that Cumberland and Salem Counties are among the poorest counties of New Jersey? In addition to a large migrant population, these counties are home to high numbers of working poor as well as the largest numbers of teen parents in New Jersey. Unfortunately, for various reasons, many of these community members struggle with limited financial resources and cannot afford to get some of the basic items needed to set up and maintain a home for their families.
organization – The
Robin Hood Project, Inc. – provides these families with some of the basic
needs for their home and for their families. It is our mission to collect
donations of needed items from other local families and put these donated items
into the hands of families in our community who need them.

we get a call requesting certain items for a needy family, we specifically pull
those items from our storage unit and personally deliver them either directly
to the family or to the agency that has requested them, which then gets them to
the family. Besides
directly helping needy families in our community who are directly referred to
us, our organization also helps families who are connected with other local
non-profit organizations and educational programs. We have provided needed
items to The Family Success Center of Vineland and Millville, The Early Intervention Program
of South Jersey HealthCare, The Spanish Community Center, Cumberland County Special Health Services and other local agencies.
Our goal is to continue to do our work on a local and personal level to insure that our poorest community members are directly served.
