ENGLEWOOD N.J. — Non-perishable cans of hearty soup were collected for the Center for Food Action in Englewood on Jan. 19 with Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck as part of a arts networking event.
The Northern New Jersey Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization, held its second ArtsBergen quarterly networking meeting, “Connecting the Dots through Marketing: Engaging Our Communities Through the Arts.”
The event attracted artists, writers, arts administrators, educators, municipal and community leaders, business owners, and arts supporters living or working in Bergen County. The NNJCF initiated the collection as part of its mission to promote collaboration and civic engagement in the community. The food donation will provide nourishment to people in Bergen County during the cold winter months.
NNJCF, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization based in Englewood, focuses primarily on the arts, civic engagement, education, and public health. NNJCF works with local governments, school districts, businesses, non-profit organizations, and citizen groups in Northern New Jersey to improve community life. Foundation partners identify and resolve regional problems and opportunities by talking and learning from each other, by sharing ideas, best practices, services, and resources.
