Making a Difference This Holiday Season
This season, we are excited to announce that we are operating two very special Holiday Drives as an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of individuals throughout our community and beyond. Service to the community is one of the pillars of New Concepts' value system, and we are humbled to be giving back to the worthy organizations that we are partnering with.
We will be partnering with the Rochelle Park Police Department in hosting a Toy Drive to benefit Toys for Tots. We welcome you to mail or bring in unwrapped toys to our our office. On Thursday, December 21st, we will bring them to the Rochelle Park Police Department to distribute them to needy children in the area.
We are also holding a Holiday Drive through Hero Box, an organization that supports deployed, injured, aging and homeless veterans. We will be collecting donations for the Hero Box Drive between December 4th and December 15th. If you would like to participate in this cause please drop off items from Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Once the donations are received, our clients will be putting together packages for the active duty military unit that New Concepts for Living will be sponsoring. It is an inspirational way to give back to the community and help motivate the individuals that keep us safe and free overseas.
We will begin accepting donations starting Monday, December 4th at 8 a.m. at our main office facility located at 68a West Passaic St., Rochelle Park, NJ, 07662 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please feel free to contact us with any questions and other ways that you can help make a difference.
