Donation Match Set For 9/11 Snack Pack Event

Join us in assembling 2,500 snack packs on the National Day of Service & Remembrance, Thursday, September 11th, at the Englewood Field Club (341 Engle St., Englewood) from 4 pm-6 pm.  On 9/11 last year, more than 100 individual and corporate volunteers assembled 2000 weekend snack packs and we hope to pack even more this year. 

The suggested minimum donation for each participating adult from your company is $45. This will fund 10 snack packs for children in need. We are also happy to announce that Jen Maxfield Ostfeld and Scott Ostfeld will be matching all donations to the 9/11 event.  

CFA is choosing to host this event on September 11th in recognition of what is now known as a National Day of Service.  To this end, we are working with supporters to build a stronger community by helping to assure that all children in our area have the proper nutrition to develop into productive and self-sufficient adults.

Welcome to Smile Packs

CFA is launching Smile Packs, a new initiative to help encourage our young clients to exercise proper dental hygiene.

Our plan is to add Smile Packs, the small bags filled with dental hygiene products that dentists give to patients after check-ups, to CFA’s Weekend Snack Packs twice a year. We would also like to make Smile Packs available to young clients when they accompany a parent picking up an emergency food package.  

A big thank you to Fair Lawn Dental Associates and Edgewater Pediatric Dentistry for generously donating the first Smile Packs.  Photos will follow. 

YOU CAN EASILY HELP by asking your dentist to support our Smile Packs initiative.  For more information, please contact: jenniferjohnson@cfanj.org | 201.569.1804 x28
