The New Providence Choir Festival will be held on Sunday, May 21st at 4 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church at New Providence, at 1307 Springfield Ave. in New Providence.

The concert, which falls on the first day of National EMS Week, will be a fundraiser for the New Providence Rescue Squad. The New Providence Rescue Squad is a 501 c (3) non-profit organization comprised of volunteers who are dedicated to providing emergency medical attention to the sick and injured. Beyond this, their duties include providing transportation to area hospitals, assisting in Civil Defense Operations, cooperating with the New Jersey First Aid Council, assisting in rescue operations and catastrophes as requested, and promoting instruction in emergency care.


All of the services provided by the New Providence Rescue Squad are free of charge to those in need of them. Being a non-profit operation, the Squad does not receive direct support from property taxes and relies solely on contributions from local residents and businesses for survival. The public is invited to attend and support the NPRS. All donations are tax-deductible.
