VVPA Friends, Neighbors & Supporters:
As we come to the end of 2015, we want to take a moment to thank everyone who has contributed throughout the year in their many ways to making the VVPA a vibrant community organization. From financial support to volunteering one’s time organizing, setting up, and cleaning up after our rockin’ events, to participating in our monthly meetings, to attending the VVPA sponsored events. The VVPA has been an active part of this vibrant community since 1975 because of all of you!
This holiday season is the perfect time to consider contributing once again to help the VVPA continue to sponsor free and low-cost community events throughout 2016. Making a donation is simple! You can donate by going to the VVPA website and clicking on the Donate button or sending a check to the VVPA C/O the Barrow Mansion (83 Wayne St., Jersey City). As a 501c3, all donations are tax deductible, so this is the perfect way to wrap up your year-end charitable contributions. And, don’t forget to check with your employer to see if they’ll match your charitable contribution!
Additionally, the VVPA is always looking for neighbors to lend a hand by volunteering at any number of our events (listed on our monthly newsletter), participating in our committees (construction & development, sponsorship/outreach, etc.) and/or contributing any professional services that you think would be in support of our mission. Please reach out to the board at email@example.com to give back to the community organization that gives so much to you throughout the year!
Happy holidays, and we look forward to a bright and joyful 2016! The board of the Van Vorst Park Association
