Dr. Christian “Chris” Hansen

Click the link below to read an article published in the Trenton Times on Monday, February 15, 2010 about Dr. Christian “Chris” Hansen. Chris spent many hours volunteering at TASK. He volunteered regularly as a tutor in our Adult Education Program and helped serve meals and bus tables whenever he could. He will always be a part of the TASK family. He was a wonderful friend and we will miss him.

Warmth in the Nick of Time…

On February 3rd TASK volunteers distributed 223 pairs of gloves, along with tote bags to our patrons. The gloves were given to TASK thanks to the efforts of an anonymous donor. We were able to distribute them just in time for the recent snowstorms! Thanks to this generous donation, TASK was able to accommodate a serious need during the winter season.
