From November 26 – November 30, Place St. Charles is challenging the approximately¬†2,300 individuals who work in the building to raise $10,000 for the Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund. Place St. Charles is also accepting corporate donations, as an extra bonus, corporate donors will be listed in the next issue of “In Place” the Place St. Charles newsletter.
