From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, we are highlighting each of the organizations featured in the Jersey Give-Back Guide, an online giving gadget that takes the guesswork out of year-end giving.

What they do:
As the leading social service and advocacy organization in the lronbound, ICC takes a unique approach to delivering quality services linking them with community planning, development, and activism.
