The Family Assistance Resource Center NJ provides furniture assistance to Fire victims and those in need to help them restart their lives. In keeping with our mission to provide the necessary assistance needed to allow families and individuals to overcome a catastrophic event and regain their ability to support themselves. This is only possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you.
One of our volunteers wrote:
"Wanted to let you know i really enjoyed being a part of the organization volunteer team yesterday as we delivered furniture to fire victims. The best part of the experience was not in the hours put in but the learning of how the organization works and has met the needs of so many families. I feel so blessed to be a part of FARC."
When families from four different fires in Essex County found themselves alone, cold, homeless and hungry, FARC arrived to bring a warm delicious meal for everyone. For several days, FARC volunteers arrived early to set up tables while others prepared to served the catered food, buffet style.
FARC Introduced and Arranged for Orange High School Culinary Students to visit WALIA Ethiopian Restaurant
February 26, 2014
Dear Mr. Hinton,
I took my students to WALIA restaurant where they learned about Ethiopian cuisine and made injera bread. It was a great opportunity for my students and they learned about the teff flour that the injera bread is made of, how the batter is fermented before use. Thank you for connecting me and the owner of WALIA.
I am looking forward to utilize some more businesses that will offer similar opportunities for my students.
Thank you very much for your continued support and always keeping students
interest in front.
