The Spirit of Giving

On the eve of Thanksgiving, Newark Community Solutions along with the Newark Youth Court staff and members prepared and packed food for the 2016 “Share the Harvest” event hosted by PACTION Newark at the Clinton Memorial AMEZ Church. PACTION Newark is a consortium formed in fall of 2015 to facilitate collaboration and sharing between NGOs, faith based organizations and community organizers with the goal of serving the homeless, local youth and other vulnerable residents of Newark and the Greater Newark area. The two day event brought in volunteers from organizations and businesses all determined to help provide warm meals for the holiday. Last year PACTION Newark served and delivered 3,541 meals to the community and we hoped to surpass that this year!

Newark Community Solutions and Newark Youth Court are so proud to take part in an event that truly embodies the spirit of the season.  

From our family to yours – HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
