What services do we provide?
Community Treasures is a local non-profit committed to giving a hand up to Jersey City residents in need, especially in the aftermath of emergencies. Founder, Tina Nalls, can be seen around Jersey City wearing pink fuzzy boots, pounding the pavement in search of donations to help fire victims, struggling families and other neighbors in need. Tina calls her effort the Boots on the Ground #PinkBootsInitiative and works to provide clothing, housewares and basic essentials, free of charge.
“Unfortunately, I know what it is to be in need. In 2010, I fell short on my luck and was unable to afford the basic life necessities. I needed some clothing and was only able to find a second-hand shop that was charging a few dollars for a shirt. At the time, even a few dollars was hard to scrape together. This situation was a turning point for me and it caused me to think about other families that might be experiencing the same setbacks. Community Treasures was born out of my desire to physically be there with needed supplies for my friends and neighbors in times of crisis.” said, Tina Nalls, Founder of Community Treasures.
Community Treasures exists purely on donations and the kindness of the Jersey City community. Founder Tina Nalls is committed to insuring that basic needs like clothing, housewares, shoes and other items are available free of charge for all. Community Treasures’ has become a go-to organization for residents experiencing unexpected loss like a layoff or loss of home due to a fire. Community Treasures also values their connections and works to refer and connect individuals in need to resources.
