Paterson, New Jersey (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
On September 20th Eva’s Village, New Jersey’s most comprehensive anti-poverty organization, welcomed a volunteer team from Breeze-Eastern Corporation in Whippany to serve the noon meal in its soup kitchen. Breeze-Eastern Corporation, the world’s only dedicated helicopter hoist and wince provider has been an industry leader known for its technical innovation and product quality. Like many corporations they set time aside each year to give back to their communities by giving their time to local organizations.
The “Fund-A-Meal” program provides the opportunity for corporate teams to sponsor a meal in Eva’s Community Kitchen and to serve the meal on the day of their sponsorship. “We have expanded our kitchen to accommodate the overwhelming numbers of people coming for a hot meal each day,” commented Donna Marie Fico, Director of Marketing & Education. “We are in need of funding to provide the meals as well as volunteer teams to serve them, and this corporate team building effort answers both of those needs. We are always pleased to welcome a new corporate team and appreciate the funding for Eva’s Village.” The volunteer corporate teams also get a chance to learn about and see many of the other programs Eva’s Village has to offer.
Eva’s Village strives to feed a hot lunch to all that come to their door each day (365 days/year), serving more than 140,000 lunches/year. The soup kitchen program at Eva’s Village, has experienced more than a 24% increase since 2007.
