On Friday, September 9th, at 4:00 pm, CFA will gather in person for our 10th Annual 9/11 Weekend Snack Pack event at Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe. CFA’s annual day of service supports our initiatives by improving our neighbors’ lives, strengthening communities, and fostering civic engagement through service and volunteering.

There are three different ways you can support our 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance Weekend Snack Pack event.

1. Register your company, organization, or family members to participate in our in-person Weekend Snack Pack event at Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe.

*Please note that space is limited

2. Create a team online and help us raise much needed funds to purchase food for the Weekend Snack Packs (insert link). Once you log on, you will find all the tools you need to create pre-written emails to your colleagues, friends, and family, plus language for your social media posts.

3. Donate directly to CFA

With inflation rising, we know some parents and their children will need CFA’s help to avoid the pitfalls associated with food insecurity. CFA’s Weekend Snack Packs are discreetly placed in student backpacks in over 11 municipalities in Bergen County, including various schools, after-school programs, and public libraries, to bridge the hunger gap.

I invite you to join my family and me this year. This event is a source of true inspiration as we come together to answer the clarion call of helping our neighbors facing hunger. Now more than ever, we need your support!
