With Main Street Marathon, LLC, the North Hunterdon Educational Foundation, and Hunterdon County ESC, BaseCamp 31 helped promote various races and in doing so, donating much needed funding to organizations like the Municipal Alliance of Hunterdon County and the Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs program in support of drug abuse prevention for our youth, to Teen Challenge of NJ to assist those recovering from addiction, and to further fund the annual John Schaible Jr. Memorial Scholarship.

Philanthropy:

Giving:
Thanks to the BC31 Community & Pro-Activity clientele, over two car loads went down to Harvest Family Success Center and directly to local families in need, including over 40 gifts, and over $600 in gift cards. A great example of a community coming together to make an immediate impact!
It’s been an amazing year…we look forward to working with you in making 2018 another step forward.  But till then, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
Most Sincerely,
Eric Eisenhart
