Centennial Grant

The Governance Board of the Junior League of Greater Princeton is thrilled to announce the winner of its Centennial Grant: Trenton-based Arm In Arm, formerly the Crisis Ministry of Trenton/Princeton. The announcement was made during a virtual auction held Saturday, May 22, to raise funds to support projects that align with the JLGP’s efforts to alleviate food insecurity.

Arm in Arm’s proposal showed that they were adaptable in response to the pandemic, pivoting to 100% mobile food pantries, and later to a hybrid model. Serving multiple communities, partnering with Arm in Arm allows for many varied opportunities for Junior League members to volunteer. They maintain partnerships with other organizations in the food security space and they have a broad base of financial support to sustain their mission.

About Arm In Arm: Arm In Arm is a place where our community comes together to make sure we all have the most basic needs of food and shelter and, as possible, the livelihood to maintain them. To learn more, please visit https://arminarm.org/about/

A Special Thank You to the Following JLGP Members who helped with the selection process.
