LEONIA, N.J. -- Since 1944, the Leonia Community Chest has been proud to support neighbors helping neighbors. As part of its annual fund drive, it sent a letter to residents, seeking donations for 18 community organizations who provide services to those in need. It is also hosting an event on Thursday, March 3, where the public can learn about these groups.
Agency Night on March 3, will provide the public a chance for the public to get to know the organizations LCC supports. At this annual event, organizations who either receive or wish to receive LCC grants make brief presentations about the services they provide -- specifically those services used by Leonia residents.
The groups LCC supports focus on those in need among the young, elderly, needy, hungry, and the emotionally or physically ill, as well as community-building activities, like arts and youth organizations.
The event is free and open to the public, and will be at the Leonia Methodist church, Woodbridge Avenue. You can learn how to volunteer at or contact individual agencies online.
You can donate online here, or send donations to P.O. Box 68, Leonia, NJ 07605. LCC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so contributions are tax deductible.
LCC's board welcomes volunteers to serve on the board or help with activities. If interested in volunteering or learning more, contact Nike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
