St. Stephen’s Community House is a hub for advancing self-sufficiency in the community; committed to assisting residents in the Greater Linden area to build community, self-sufficiency and individual well-being. St. Stephen’s strengthens families with social service programs that empower youth through mentoring, tutoring and entrepreneurship.


Their Christmas Care program has been in existence for over 65 years and gives a hand to families during the holiday season who find themselves in a critical position due to situations such as fixed incomes, job lay-offs and/or family illness by providing food baskets to over 6,500 individuals.


Join Besa and St. Stephen's Community House to support low income families this holiday season! As a volunteer, we'll fill shopping carts with a variety of food that will be packaged and distributed to families. Other duties may be available depending on day-of needs.


Face masks are required to be worn at all times. Social distancing will be observed. Masks and gloves are available upon request. Limited client interaction will take place during this volunteer event.
