SUMMIT, NJ - Summit-based Student/Partner Alliance will be among the honorees when Greater Newark Conservancy hosts its “Making Our City Bloom Gala,” on May 15.
Margaret Momber, Executive Director, will accept the Joan D. Murray Volunteerism award on behalf of the Student/Partner Alliance, a non-sectarian, non-profit organization offering concerned individuals, corporations, and foundations a way to help economically disadvantaged but determined young people from New Jersey’s inner cities obtain their high school diplomas from a local private school, through a combination of financial and personal support. Members volunteer with the Conservancy in various community greening / urban farming activities. The award is named for the late Joan D. Murray, formerly of Morristown, who was an active member of the Morristown Garden Club and a longtime supporter of the Conservancy’s programs.
