It was 2009 when superstar and philanthropist Jon Bon Jovi first toured Camden to see up close the severe problems that plagued the city. He met with community leaders struggling to incite change and made a promise to use his greatest resources – his funds and his fame – to support their work. The rocker visited again last month, only this time he was touring a new 17,000-square-foot homeless facility, a place he helped build without picking up a hammer or nail.
The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation and the JBJ Soul Kitchen would like to thank you for your support and generosity this holiday season. Your support makes our work possible and we thank you for being our partner.
We have received an overwhelming amount of positive support after sharing Jon Bon Jovi’s visit to a program the JBJ Soul Foundation is helping to fund – Joseph’s House of Camden, NJ. Many have asked how they can help and we would like to share how you can make a difference this Thanksgiving.
In our Foundation’s ongoing effort to help end hunger in America, Jon Bon Jovi attended an event for A Place at the Table over the weekend.
