Eva’s Village, New Jersey’s most comprehensive anti-poverty organization, is grateful to Pharmachem Laboratories for supporting their summer program as the camp’s transportation sponsor. Pharmachem Labs is a leading developer and manufacturer of specialty granulated bulk ingredients for the food, beverage and nutritional industries. “We feel very fortunate to be in a position to partner with Eva’s to help those in need in our community,” stated Mr. Bob McCrimlisk of Pharmachem.

The programs for the children living at The Hope Residence at Eva’s Village have been greatly expanded since 2008, including a summer filled with enrichment, education and fun! This year, those back to school assignments about “What I did on my summer vacation?” will be filled with wonderful memories for the children living in Eva’s family shelter. “The summer program provides popular opportunities for funding that many of our donors appreciate,” commented Donna Marie Fico, director of marketing and education. “It is a heartwarming feeling to know that you are giving homeless children a chance to attend a farming camp, have weekly swimming lessons, go to the zoo, a pottery studio, rock climbing, and enjoy special time with mom on a Broadway trip to see Matilda,” she continued.

The caring and nurturing child care staff at Eva’s Village created a 10 week program which includes local attractions, walking trips and fun summer bus trips. “The children are excited about the program and moms are grateful for the opportunity for their children to have a fun summer to look forward to and to remember,” commented Judy Dombrosky, coordinator of the child care and education department at Eva’s Village. The program starts this week with four days at Abma’s Health Barn. At the health barn the children will learn about composting, planting seeds, picking vegetables and will make snacks from the food they pick.
