Project Details

What We Need
  • Creation of an E-Newsletter from scratch, or an overhaul of an existing one
  • Training on how to input content into a template
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an existing template, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have plenty of willingness to learn, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to Focus on immediate assistance to the homeless community like our haircuts and community dinners.

The success of our organization depends on being able to successfully communicate with our donors. Without your help, we cannot have a digestable newsletter. Your skills will empower us to bring all our supporters in touch with our initiatives.

About The Org

Our Mission

Provide much needed personal hygiene services to homeless people in Middlesex County with the goal of raising each person's self esteem and ultimately his/her quality of life.

What We Do

ARM was born out of a push to do more. Most of our founders were Rutgers University Alumni and we often found that student engagement was limited to very scripted activities that treat philanthropy as a reactive rather than a proactive endeavor. We were tired of doing the least we could do, so we fixed that. ARM currently operates several events a year that focus on putting the wonderful private institutions that make New Brunswick and Middlesex County unique back to the service of its citizens. Oh, and did we mention, we want to retrofit a metro bus to bring free showers and connect service providers to guests in Middlesex County! #JointheARMy and let's fight to make our community a little better, together.


Kelly is an inspiring individual with an unmatched work ethic. She requires little to no oversight and produces exceptional results. We look forward to working with her soon!
