Iglesia Ni Cristo Neighborhood Appreciation Day in New Jersey

Hundreds of residents of Union County, New Jersey are expected to receive access to free services for everyday living on Saturday, August 6, 2011 as members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) or Church of Christ thank the community for its continuous support and hospitality to the church throughout its growth.

Dubbed as Neighborhood Appreciation Day, the day of service is part of the INC Giving Project which is aimed at helping families and communities during challenging economic times.

“The services we’re offering our neighbors are strategically aligned with the needs of the region to ensure we’re providing children and families everyday resources not often supplied free of cost.” said Manuel Palad, Iglesia ni Cristo District Minister of Northeastern Seaboard. “More nonprofits are unfortunately closing their doors with the downturn of the economy, but even after nearly 100 years, the INC is still growing internationally; it’s our way of saying thank you to our neighbors and opening our doors to those who’ve welcomed us on their street every week for the last 29 years.”
