With the most wonderful time of the year right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what gifts we want to pick out for our friends and loved ones. And if you’re looking to make a purchase with a purpose this year, look no further than the HomeFront Holiday Market.

From Friday, November 11th through Sunday, November 13th, HomeFront will be hosting a holiday market full of artisan gifts for everyone on your list. The market will be held at the newly-expanded HomeFront headquarters at 1800 Princeton Ave in Lawrenceville, NJ. The hours for each day of the market are as follows:

  • Fri., Nov. 11th: 3 – 6 pm
  • Sat., Nov. 12th: 10 am – 3 pm
  • Sun., Nov. 13th: 10 am – 3 pm

Featured works will include pieces from HomeFront’s ArtSpace artists, as well as a variety of other local vendors. All proceeds will go towards supporting HomeFront’s artists, crafters, and community programs as they seek to break the cycle of poverty in New Jersey.

“HomeFront’s core mission is to end homelessness and to break the cycle of poverty for families in our region,” says Sarah Steward, HomeFront’s Chief Executive Officer. “Every HomeFront program is designed to give local families the support, skills, and resources to transform their lives and put them and their children on a path to thrive.”

The Holiday Market is part of HomeFront’s campaign for Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. Over the course of the week, HomeFront will be providing a variety of educational opportunities designed to raise awareness and promote ending hunger and homelessness within our community. Some of the week’s events include panel discussions, volunteer opportunities, and educational workshops.

HomeFront has been serving the Central Jersey community for over 25 years. Through HomeFront’s various programs and supports, they seek to provide immediate relief to families experiencing homelessness, as well as provide the skills and opportunities necessary to become self-sufficient and break the cycle of poverty. HomeFront houses hundreds of people each year – within the last year alone, HomeFront estimates that they’ve had almost 14,000 heads of household walk through their doors seeking services. But, they couldn’t do this amazing work without the support of community members like you.

Be sure to make it out to HomeFront’s Holiday Market November 11th-13th to kick off the holidays for a cause. If you have any questions, please contact HomeFront at getinvolved@homefrontnj.org or call 609-989-9417 x 107.
