New Brunswick Housing Authority Hosts Days of Caring 2005

(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) – The New Brunswick Housing Authority (NBHA) announces Days of Caring 2005 scheduled for Monday, May 2nd from 9:45am to 4:15pm at the Schwartz-Robeson Village Complex. A rain date of Tuesday May 3rd @ 9:45am is scheduled if necessary. Partnering with the NBHA will be the Robeson-Schwartz Tenant Association, UMDNJ and the NBPS Adult Learning Center who will sponsor the New Jersey Youth Corps of Middlesex County. Since 1998, the New Brunswick Housing Authority has been actively seeking partnerships with recognized organizations to empower its residents through formalized training programs and community volunteer activities. John Clarke, NBHA Executive Director noted, “The Days of Caring event provides adults and kids with an opportunity to better their community while having fun. This event is just another example of how residents and the Housing Authority can work together to make a better future for all families in our public housing properties and improve the neighborhood all at once.”

       The activities scheduled will be broken down into the following: Planting flowers and small shrubs; cleaning (raking) the area around the planting beds and painting eight (8) large plant and tree pots/holders.

       John Walton, Crew Supervisor for the New Jersey Youth Corps of Middlesex County noted, “The New Jersey Youth Corps of Middlesex County is proud to partner with the City of New Brunswick and its Housing Authority to help improve their communities. We are also very eager to recruit youth volunteers from New Brunswick who are committed to bettering their communities through civic service. Their dedication and determination will ensure the continued success of New Brunswick.”

      The successes of the Days of Caring activities are in large part due to the effectiveness of the NBHA staff. Schwartz-Robeson Tenant Association President Yvonne Weeks stated, “It is extremely gratifying to work with people who care about their job, and to see the positive efforts of the residents, who take part in the planning process as well.”
