The Hammonton Education Foundation conducts several fundraisers each year.
Proceeds are used to fund innovative projects that enhance the quality of education in the Hammonton School District.
ThanksforGiving Gala - November 19, 2022
The Hammonton Education Foundation held its inaugural ThanksForGiving Gala from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Cart Barn at Pinelands Golf Club.
Tickets included dinner (with appetizers and dessert), a first drink sponsored by D’Amico Travel, dancing with DJ Brandon Bobal and a photo booth experience from Memorious Moments.
A high-value prize auction was held, and the grand prize was an all-inclusive vacation to a Hard Rock Hotel in Mexico/Caribbean for a family of four. A 50/50 raffle was also held.
The event was a huge success due the generosity of our sponsors, donors and attendees. Approximately $23,000 was raised for the foundation.
Recycling Central - Sept. 17, 2022
Recycling Central is held every September at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel grounds at Third and French streets.
A mobile shredding unit from DocuVault Delaware Valley provides secure disposal of old documents and computer hard drives. Proceeds from these collections benefit the Hammonton Education Foundation.
Other participating organizations in 2022 included the Hammonton Lions Club, which collected eyeglasses and hearing aids; Hammonton Police Department, which collected expired or unused medication; The Presbyterian Church at Hammonton, which collected personal hygiene items for infants to adults, household items (glassware, dishes, utensils, etc.), small appliances and toys; and Woman's Civic Club of Hammonton's Kids Closet, which collected gently used shoes, sneakers and boots for adults or children.

Taste of the Town - "One Bite at a Time"
Taste of the Town is held each spring at Hammonton High School. Approximately two dozen restaurants and vendors serve their signature dishes, such as pizza, pasta, soups, hors d'oeuvres and desserts. The event showcases student performers, including musicians, singers and dancers. A basket auction and 50/50 also are offered.
Due to some lingering concerns related to COVID-19, we are putting a new twist on our biggest fundraiser for 2022. Taste of the Town "One Bite at a Time" lets you enjoy delicious food, support local businesses and fund innovative projects in our schools!
For a $25 donation, you will receive a card good for discounts at 30 businesses from April 1 to May 31, 2022. Cardholders will enjoy special offers on appetizers, entrees, desserts, beer/wine, retail purchases and more!
