Washington School of Wyckoff held a successful fundraiser for us this past week and we thank all the students and staff for their support! Stop & Shop of Wyckoff donated seasonal candy this past week. These are great examples of what people and businesses in the community can do to raise money and awareness for this worthy cause. The following times for office volunteering are available: Monday, 1 to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 2:30 to 5 p.m.; and Friday, 1 to 5 p.m. This year, we are asking community organizations such as schools, churches, temples, and places of work to consider becoming involved with us at a greater level. Whether you help us currently, or never have helped us in any way, we invite everyone to get involved at this critical time. Many non-profit organizations such as ours have experienced a significant drop in financial and material contributions. Involvement can take many forms, but doesn’t have to take a lot of time. For example, businesses can host a fundraiser such as a “Dress Down Day, when employees make a donation to wear casual clothes,” host a Golf Outing, or contribute a certain percentage of profits for one day. Schools can collect non-perishable food items, or raise funds for ECF by hosting a “Pajama Day” or “Hat Day,” when everyone pays $5 for the privilege of wearing PJs or a hat to school. Schools can also fundraise by hosting a basketball game or a dance and charging admission. Churches and temples may call us for a variety of suggestions, including making a financial contribution, collecting non-perishable foods, assembling birthday bags, or purchasing gift cards. Call us at (201) 612-8118 before you stop by. Please do not leave items at the center without checking with us first. Our storage space is limited. Hours are Monday, 10 to 1; Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 to 5; and Thursday, 10 to 2. The Northern Regional Center is located at 174 Paterson Avenue, Midland Park, NJ 07432.
