Join Jersey City

 

Furnished Quarters is a local company with global reach. We provide the best temporary furnished apartments available, whether you need accommodations across town, across the country, or across the globe.

That’s why when it comes to some of Furnished Quarters’ featured locations in the Northeastern states of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, we hold a soft spot. And we’re devoted to the ongoing recovery efforts needed in these regions post-Hurricane Sandy.

While Sandy’s devastating effects may be fading in the memory of those who only witnessed them on television, for those living in the hardest-hit areas, the need for help is ongoing.

On Thanksgiving, Jersey City Sandy Relief Volunteers posted the following message on their Facebook page:

Superstorm Sandy took a tremendous toll on our City. Weeks later, so many residents struggle to rebuild and restore all that was lost. Yet, amidst the challenges, there you were, and still are, inspiring one another, offering hope amidst so much loss and suffering.

Every single volunteer is a testament to the greatness of Jersey City. The people who rose to this unprecedented challenge with acts of brotherhood, neighborly kindness and outright compassion are the spirit of Thanksgiving.  

This week, needs for volunteers continue around the clock in Jersey City, with United Way leading the charge. Here are details from the organization about upcoming assistance needed:

What: New and gently used winter clothes and goods await help to be sorted and delivered before winter weather arrives.

When: Saturday, December 1st and Sunday, December 2nd - 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Where: Weather permitting, the sorting will be held in the parking lot of the old Naval Readiness Center located at:

If inclement weather, volunteers will meet at United Way of Hudson County’s offices at:
