Fifteen year committee member Lori Rillo believes strongly in the importance of giving back to the community.  “The Community Service Association helps people in town who are less fortunate.  At some point in our lives we will all need a little bit of help, and when you’re in a place in your life when you can give back, it’s so important to do so.  If everyone could give a little bit of time and effort to the Community Service Association, it would make a big impact in other peoples’ lives.”

The Community Service Association (CSA) of New Providence has been providing aid to local residents ever since it was created by a group of concerned community members in 1954.  The CSA seeks to counsel New Providence residents in need of help by providing interim care until more permanent aid is established.  When eligible, the Community Service Association guides disadvantaged individuals to proper social and governmental agencies with the help of a caseworker.  Insurance, utility bills, medical bills, transportation, rent, food, and clothing are only some of the areas in which the Community Service Association helps disadvantaged individuals.

The Community Service of New Providence is a non-profit organization chartered by the State of New Jersey.  The CSA receives funding through the United Way, individual donations, and annual fundraisers.  If you would like to become a committee member of the Community Service Association, meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at the New Providence Senior Citizens Center at 7:30 pm For more information, visit them online at http://www.csanewprovidence.org or contact them personally at 908-665-8254.

“It feels good to give back, because you really can make a difference in someone else’s life.” – Lori Rillo.
