Volunteer Needed Now for Garden Project

A high school-aged group of Girl Scouts has offered to plant flowers here as a service project during summer camp in the month of July.  However, we have no garden tools, no flowers to plant and no one to direct the project.  If you know someone who would be able to direct the project -- that is, to determine what flowers to plant and where to plant them -- please contact Sister Ann Marie at (973) 470-0844 or  The time commitment would be limited to planning the project and directing the girls on the day(s) of planting.  However, the girls are in camp only during the month of July, so time is of the essence in starting the project.

The photo above shows our main gathering room, which is about 25' x 15' with a 10' ceiling, and which we hope to turn into a comfortable space for sharing and learning.  (E-mail subscribers, click here if you do not see a photo above.)  We are seeking the following new or gently used items for this room:

  • Multiple table or floor lamps (including at least two matching table lamps)
  • Matching window treatments for five large windows (about 72" x 32") and a combination of one large window with two smaller windows (about 58" x 84" total, pictured at the end of the room above)
  • Large area rug
  • Bright artwork (perhaps landscapes, seascapes or other nature scenes)
  • House plants.
If you or anyone you know is able to donate these items to the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women or to donate toward their purchase, please contact Sister Ann Marie at (973) 470-0844 or sam

We will make you aware of other needs in future posts, but here is a preview of what will be included in those requests, should you wish to be aware of them now:
  • Desktop computers with monitors or laptop computers (4)
  • Computer desks (and chairs for computer desks)
  • Computer supplies
  • Printer(s)

We are deeply grateful for your assistance as we continue to prepare to serve the women of Passaic.

Volunteers Needed

As we continue to prepare for our opening, we are seeking volunteers to serve on the staff as receptionists/greeters.  These volunteers should have excellent interpersonal and telephone skills and a passion for working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.  Fluency in both Spanish and English would be a "plus."  Daytime hours (Monday through Friday) are flexible.  If you know anyone who might be interested in this volunteer opportunity, please have them contact Sr. Ann Marie via e-mail at or by phone at the Center, (973) 470-0844.
