Eva's Meal Program Gets New Sponsor

 

PATERSON, NJ - On December 11 Eva’s Village, New Jersey’s most comprehensive anti-poverty organization, will welcome a volunteer team from Stryker, Mahwah, to serve the noon meal in its kitchen program. Stryker, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, provided a sponsorship to the “Fund-A-Meal” program to provide meals for community members in need.

The “Fund-A-Meal” program provides the opportunity for corporate teams to sponsor a meal in Eva’s Kitchen and to serve the meal on the day of their sponsorship.  “We have expanded our kitchen to accommodate the overwhelming numbers of people coming for a hot meal each day,” commented Donna Marie Fico, Director of Marketing & Education. “We are in need of funding to provide the meals as well as volunteer teams to serve them, and this corporate team building effort answers those needs.”  Stryker participated in our teambuilding Bond, Boost and Build program in the past and their willingness to become a Fund-A-Meal sponsor signifies not only their support of Eva’s, but also their commitment to corporate citizenship.
