The Neighborhood Outreach Foundation (NOF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has been part of the Council Rock School District community since March of 1992. This includes all residents of Newtown Borough, Newtown Township, Northampton Township, Upper Makefield Township and Wrightstown Township.
Their mission is to provide aid when other support systems have faltered or are unavailable. The kind of assistance that may be given includes help with medical and utility expenses, as well as rent and food. Since their founding, the NOF has given out over $1,000,000 in grants.
With this unsettled economy, and with so many still unable to find employment, the need for grants is ever-increasing. NOF is hoping to be able to honor the requests of all those struggling in our community.
The foundation hosts one major fundraising event each year. The 2013 event, “April in Paris,” is to be held Saturday, April 6th, at the Cock’n’Bull in Peddler’s Village, Lahaska. It will feature dinner and dancing, silent and live auctions, as well as raffled items. Times for the event will be 6:30 to 11:00pm. The ticket price is $75 per person and no tickets will be available at the door.
If you wish to join in the support of NOF, and enjoy the evening of fun, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to request an invitation. You may also visit their website, www.cr-nof.org, for tickets and further information.
