Come join us for our Volunteer Coordinators' meeting on Wednesday, January 15th at 6:30 pm. We'll be meeting at the Faith Discovery Church Fellowship Hall, 33 Brass Castle Road, in Washington, NJ 07882.
Our guest speaker will be Georjean W. Trinkle, Associate Director of NORWESCAP.

Are you interested in learning more about poverty in NJ and in Warren County? Have you ever wondered about the causes and effects of poverty? If you have never lived in poverty...have you wondered what choices you may have to change your circumstances?

Poverty impacts all of us in the community. Attend this meeting and learn more about the perspectives of people in poverty and what we can do to improve our community.

Not too long ago at a volunteer coordinators' meeting, we showed the documentary, A Place at the Table, that explored hunger in America. In our ongoing effort to inform folks in Warren County about the plight of neighbors in our own backyards, this Wednesday night, January 15th, at 6:30 pm, we are having a special guest come to discuss poverty and how it affects people right here in Warren County. We would like to invite everyone in the community to come and hear her presentation on the need and difficulties facing us in our communities and what you have been doing and what others can do to help your neighbors in Warren County. So please share this invitation with your clergy, church leaders, friends and neighbors. There will be refreshments.
