You need not wait until November 28 to make your "Giving Tuesday" donation to the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women; you can do it today!  Just go to our page (click here) on the site and complete the information.  Remember that our generous benefactors will match each dollar up to $2,500.  That bring us so much closer to the new computers for our women.

Exciting News: A Challenge!

As you know, on November 28 we are participating in Giving Tuesday through iGiveCatholic. We are desperately in need of  new computers and accessories to sustain the Rosetta Stone portion of our English learning program.  Just yesterday, we received exciting news about our Giving Tuesday campaign:  Generous donors will match every dollar up to a total of $2,500!  So, if you are able to donate $25, it will equal $50; $50 will equal $100; and . . . well, you get the picture!  Your donation will go so much further with this "challenge match."  Thank you to our benefactors who are providing the match!

Remember that early giving begins on Friday, November 10.  We will be grateful for any amount you can donate.  Because of you, we can continue to serve some of the most vulnerable families in New Jersey.  We thank you in advance.

A Prayerful Friday

We are grateful to our volunteer, Sister Maria Pia Arca, a novice with the Sisters of Christian Charity for leading our first-ever prayer group on Friday, September 29.  Given the current stressors in the lives of our women, they were so very grateful to be able to spend an hour in prayer together.  This fits in beautifully with our goal of helping our women to grow wholly -- body, mind and spirit.  Another hour of prayer will be offered this Friday.  We will be sure to remember your intentions.

A Beautiful Friday!

On Friday, September 22, the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women held two workshops for our women and their children.  (Passaic Public Schools were closed to allow their Jewish students to observe Rosh Hashanah.)  Our dear friend, Rosa, led a workshop on making paper flowers known as "Cempazuchitl."  These flowers are particularly important to Mexicans as they honor the souls of their deceased ancestors.  After the paper flower project was completed, the women and their children visited the Center's garden, where our friend, Jose German, Founder of Northeast Earth Coalition, held an educational workshop.  We are so very grateful to Northeast Earth Coalition for sponsoring this workshop and for its constant support of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women.

All in all, it was a beautiful day with filled with smiles, mothers, children, friends, flowers, sunshine and gardens. Please watch the slideshow below to share in our joy! (Email subscribers who do not see the video embedded below, please click here to view this post on the blog.)
