NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The Community Service Association (CSA) of New Providence will hold its next meeting on Wednesday, March 9 at 7:30pm at the DeCorso Community Center, 15 East Fourth Street. Boro residents who would like to get involved are welcome to attend. The CSA meets the second Wednesday of each month.
At this meeting, members will discuss the group's Pasta Dinner fundraiser, which is coming up on Sunday, April 3, as well as grants, ongoing business, and new cases. The CSA is in need of basket raffle items for this fundraising event.
The Community Service Association of New Providence is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that assists Boro residents with financial needs while respecting the dignity and anonymity of the assisted individuals and families. This could mean helping a family with medical bills, paying utility bills or rent, clothing assistance, transportation, and more. The CSA also organizes an annual Thanksgiving food drive with support from the Boy Scouts as well as a Christmas gift drive. The food and gifts are given to New Providence residents in need.
The CSA was established in 1954 and is believed by longtime members to be the first organization of its kind in the country. Funding for the CSA's efforts comes from the annual pasta dinner/basket raffle and from private donations.
Residents in need of the CSA's help, or anyone wishing to get involved in supporting or volunteering for the group, can contact (908) 665-8254.
