Cranford MLK Day of Service 2024

The traditional Martin Luther King Day of Service project sponsored by the Cranford Clergy Council and The Interfaith Human Relations Committee, was held on January 15, 2024, at the First Presbyterian Church of Cranford. Generous neighbors dropped off hundreds of much needed items for those most vulnerable members of our communities. Items included hats, socks, gloves, diapers, wipes, health care items, feminine hygiene items, and food.

Donations were distributed to Cranford Family Care, Raphael’s Life House, St. Joseph’s Social Center, the YWCA Women’s Shelter, El Centro Hispanoamericano and Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey (NJ Diaper Network).

Janice Grievious hosted a craft program inside First Presbyterian where young people and their parents wrote thank you cards and made other items to give to armed service veterans.
