The New Jersey Relocation Council’s Community Outreach Program’s mission is to strengthen our community through charitable giving and to advance the common good. Our vision is to bring awareness and opportunities of charitable organizations to educate and inspire our membership. In the past, this program has sponsored and donated to local and global charitable foundations. Through the generosity of our membership and our sponsors we have organized fundraisers in support of; United Way, Family Promise of Morris County, Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County, the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross.
FALL 2022 Conference Charitable Organization
The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA: www.uocofusa.org
In the planning for NJRC’s Fall Conference, it was a unanimous decision to consider an organization supporting Ukraine for our charity. Community Outreach worked to identify a local organization. The V. Rev. Vasyl Pasakas, the Executive Assistant to the Council of Bishops of the Ukrainian Church of the USA was able to join us on November 10th to share their efforts in support of the people of Ukraine. Through their association with churches in Ukraine, they sponsor projects at the local level providing food and aid to the people of Ukraine. V. Rev. Pasakas shared stories of the work they are doing and the various efforts they are supporting to assist with the tremendous humanitarian needs at this time. We appreciated the opportunity NJRC had to hear about assistance for Ukraine coming from our local area.
In addition to NJRC’s donation, additional money was raised during our conference through the sale of the raffle tickets. We donated $2,285 to the Ukrainian Church of the USA.
We thank our membership and sponsors for the very kind support of this deserving charity.
