Viola Blythe Holiday Canned Food Drive has begun!
Birch Grove Primary and Intermediate schools will be collecting canned food again this year to support Viola Blythe. The Viola Blythe Community Service Center of Newark is a nonprofit, nonsectarian corporation organized to promote, support and advocate social and human services to any person who is in immediate need. This mission is accomplished by a variety of programs, including emergency food and clothing distribution, referrals to other agencies, special programs that address current community needs and holiday programs at Thanksgiving and December holidays.
From now until December 13, 2019, Birch Grove schools will be collecting canned food (please be sure your canned food donations are not outdated) along with new, unwrapped toys for the holidays. Please send your donation to your child’s classroom or drop it off in the bin in front of the school. Our support helps this essential organization provide for our needy neighbors here in Newark all year around.
Thank you in advance for your support.
