Community Service and Urban Renewal

STOKES FOUNDATION is a Goldman Sachs Community Teamworks partner organization. We have completed two Community Teamworks projects in the form of facilities renovations at the Jersey City Police Activity League’s site at the old Jersey City YMCA. With over $3,000 in funds granted by Goldman Sachs for each of these annual projects, combined with nearly 400 man-hours of physical labor contributed by dozens of Goldman Sachs employees, we worked side-by-side with Stokes Volunteers and Jersey City PAL’s students to make the environment a safer and brighter place for kids to find positive, structured activity after school. The building was filled with areas of blight but included a Golf Driving Range with Net, Wrestling Room, Boxing Ring and Fixtures, Indoor Batting Cage, Basketball Gym with Indoor Track and Multi-Use Spaces. Benjamin-Moore Paints and The Home Depot also contributed supplies to help make these projects happen. Stokes Foundation and our sponsors are proud to have left the local community looking better and in better position to serve students in need.
