Week of Giving Thanks Continues

How grateful we are to Father Brian Sullivan, pastor, and the parishioners of the Church of Christ the King in New Vernon, NJ, for awarding a "We Care We Share" grant to the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women!  We have put the funds to immediate use in our English Language Learning program.  We continue to give thanks for so much generosity bestowed on us during our "Week of Giving Thanks."  We are truly grateful for the faithful support we have received from the Church of Christ the King.  Please enjoy these photos of yesterday's presentation:

Giving Thanks for Giving Tuesday

We are so very grateful to our Giving Tuesday donors!  In addition to those who donated through iGiveCatholic, donors visited us to deliver checks and other items.  We are extremely grateful for the financial donations, but we are also very grateful for the new relationships we formed and for the faithful relationships we strengthened.  We are grateful, too, for our benefactors who offered the $2,500 match which doubled each dollar we raised! 

We are grateful to everyone in the Development Office of the Diocese of Paterson.  Through their efforts and support, we were introduced to iGiveCatholic and had a very successful first attempt at Giving Tuesday. 

How can we ever thank you enough?  Perhaps by growing the ministry and continuing to serve the people of God in Passaic, one of the poorest neighborhoods in the country.  We'll do our best!  Thank you and God bless you!

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.
