New Jersey financial aid organization, Spread the Purple, a community support system for working class families, is celebrating their recent appearance on radio’s Intro to Info. The program aired January 10th, 2013. Center to the program was Spread the Purple’s work helping those effect by Hurricane Sandy. Maryange Ariste, of Spread the Purple spoke of the ongoing work still needed in the area.
Superstorm Sandy was the deadliest hurricane to hit the northeastern U.S. in 40 years, and according to many reports is now the second-costliest hurricane in the nations’ history. For Spread the Purple, their concern is with the many working class and middle class families that aren’t receiving the benefit of much of the federal aid that’s gone to relief efforts.
Citing a clear need for help, Ariste shared that in the region that is still rebuilding and many public areas like parks are still devastated, and even worse many families that had their homes destroyed are facing unthinkable nightmares. She even shared the reports that, “electricity companies are making people pay $2000-$7000 to have their power turned!”
On the radio program, Ariste shared what Spread the Purple was doing to help Sandy victims, like their ongoing online fundraiser being hosted at http://fundly.com/hurricane-sandy-the-road-to-recovery-fund, and the newly added project called Home Heating Oil, which the organization is excited about raising funds for New Jersey’s homeowners at their “Run for Warmth” 5k Run Fundraiser. The event is taking place on Saturday, March 23rd, at 1030 River Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854 at Johnson Park. Participants are still encouraged to register at https://www.signmeup.com/site/reg/register.aspx?fid=562VCJ7, and can do so for $20 before the event or $30 on the day of the event.
Ariste revealed, "It was wonderful to spread the word about our new organization. We feel that we are pioneering new ways to run nonprofits and create solutions in today's economy. We are grateful to Mikeisha for helping us get the word out about what actually causes financial difficulties in the lives of our clients, as opposed to outdated clichés about how people lose money. We are working to be the most effective nonprofit ally for the working class."
Spread the Purple organized fundraising efforts and provides services to help working class families meet ends met. The organization has been helping people find financial grants and aid since 2006.
