SPARTA, NJ - Pass It Along announced the new location of their facilities at ‘An Evening for Pass It Along’ benefit event held at Perona Farms, in Andover, on October 25. Pass It Along will be moving their facilities to The Shoppes of Lafayette, located in Lafayette.
The new facility will be located at 75 State Route 15, Unit 62.
The Pass It Along Youth Center originally opened its doors in Fall of 2015 at 1 Brooks Avenue, in Newton, through the use of donated space provided by ThorLabs. The 2500-square foot space allowed a space for Pass It Along to begin several prominent youth-leadership programs, including Service Corps, goLead and Get Connected.
“We are extremely grateful for the space provided by ThorLabs, as it allowed us to create new programs to continually grow to what we are today,” Kurt Walton, President of Pass It Along said.
The new facility will be home to the youth center, use for a variety of programs and events organized by Pass It Along. Offices for staff members, originally located in Sparta, will also be moved to the new facility at The Shoppes of Lafayette.
The leased 2,100-square-foot space will be opened by early-December. It will have two large rooms, as well as three offices for staff members. Pass It Along also has access to the on-site church, renamed the Town Hall, for larger meetings or events, donated through property management of The Shoppes of Lafayette. Combination of the two spaces provides availability for local youth broader, offering more available time to the space.
“Moving forward, we are excited to have the premium exposure that both Pass It Along and the community deserves,” Kurt Walton said.
Weekly updates on the space will be posted to both Facebook and Instagram, and can be seen by following Pass It Along at @pass_it_along.
