Code Blue Collaborative is seeking help from local businesses

Code Blue Collaborative is a NJ non-profit 501(c)3 based in Moorestown.

We work directly with the code blue shelters in the county, as well as the one and only full-time homeless shelter in Mt Holly (Extended Hand Ministry). If you are not familiar with code blue shelters, they are county-supported shelters that open when Burlington County calls a 'code blue.' A code blue is called when the temperatures drop below 25 degrees or during snow and ice storms. Currently the county has only 4 code blue shelters, and each shelter is only allowed to provide care for 14 people. Considering the county has well over 2000 homeless people, there remains a major gap in services that Code Blue Collaborative is attempting to help fill.
We have provided new cots for these shelters (70 cots/$100 per cot) and eight new beds ($250/bed) for the Extended Hand Ministry shelter, through fundraisers and sponsorships. We also collect clothing all year; during the winter our main focus is collecting new and gently used winter attire for all ages. For the past 4 years we have also collected unwrapped holiday gifts, and this year we are proud to have sponsors for 30 families in the county!
While this has been a great success, we are still in need of more winter coats, hats, gloves and more unwrapped gifts. We are asking local businesses to consider being a part of what we do, helping provide services to more families in need. There are many ways to get your business involved, such as sponsoring a family for the holidays, or providing space in your business to serve as a drop off site. Every little bit helps!
Currently we are proud to have the support of TD Bank in Moorestown and Mount Laurel; Herron Real Estate in Moorestown; Verizon in Delran; Wing King in Moorestown; Holy Cross in Delran; Blissed Out Mama's in Moorestown; our district 7 Legislators Senator Troy Singleton, Assemblyman Herb Conaway, Assemblywoman Carol Murphy; and of course, our public schools in Moorestown who do a collection for us every year. 
We hope you will consider joining this growing list of supporters. In exchange, we are pleased to provide acknowledgement on our Facebook pages, along with your logo.
Please contact us, we'd love to work with you! 
Thanks for all you do,
For more information or to pledge your support, please contact Kristen Babcock at
