Lodi, NJ(August 20, 2019)— Greater BergenRealtors®YPN partnered up with The Boys & Girls Club of Lodi and helped as aides to the staff throughout the day during scheduled summer program activities. These programs are offered through the organization, which currently serve 3,000 local kids in Lodi and Hackensack, New Jersey. During their volunteer day, YPN members presented a fundraiser check of $2,364 to the Club. These funds will be used toward the Special Needs Sensory Room at the Lodi clubhouse.
YPN was introduced to this new initiative in the beginning of the year and wanted to help. As a result they hosted a Spring Sunset Charity Mixer where they were able to raise over $2,000.00. Like they have done in previous years, YPN members organized a K-9 presentation for the kids. Bergen County Sheriff and K-9 squad gave an educational presentation and demonstration to the kids about the important roles K-9 officers play in the police force. The afternoon ended with some delicious soft served Mr. Softee ice cream sponsored by Robert Khoury of Main Street title & Settlement Services, LLC.
“As young professionals it’s important that we get involved with our community” said Greater Bergen Realtors Director and past YPN Chair, Jacqueline Frank. “We have worked with the Boys and Girls club for a few years now, ant it’s always very rewarding to be able to help in any way to the local kids in our communities.”
Our membership is very dedicated to giving back to the community, and being able to help the future of tomorrow is always very rewarding. We are looking forward to continuing to work with the Boys and Girls Club in the future!
