La Casa de Don Pedro will receive a $70,000 grant from United Airlines to provide emergency assistance and connect recent arrivals with job opportunities to help sustain their households in the area in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

”United Airlines is committed to lifting up communities impacted by disaster, and we are proud to partner with La Casa to help connect families with the critical resources they need to recover from Hurricanes Irma and Maria,” said Sharon Grant, United Airlines Vice President of Community Affairs.

Through United’s support, La Casa de Don Pedro will be able to provide more Puerto Rican families who seek assistance with individualized action plans. These families will gain access to a variety of benefits, such as referrals for temporary lodging and more permanent homes, rental security deposits, school registration, medical assistance, nutrition assistance, FEMA enrollment, English language training and job preparation referrals. La Casa de Don Pedro projects it will work with approximately 80 households, expanding its current program that has already impacted 15 families.

“We thank United Airlines for their pledge to support Puerto Rican recent arrivals to our community. Each day we receive numerous calls and visits – from Puerto Rican families already here in Newark and from Newarkers awaiting the arrival of their relatives. La Casa is thrilled to be able to continue its efforts to welcome new families and provide them with the support they need,” said Raymond Ocasio, La Casa de Don Pedro’s Executive Director.

“To the Puerto Rican citizens arriving here, the City of Newark says, ‘Bienvenido a casa!”, said Mayor Ras J. Baraka. “Since the hurricane disaster struck Puerto Rico several months ago, the City of Newark has been on the forefront of relief efforts, working closely with our community and corporate partners such as United Airlines and La Casa de Don Pedro, and even sending our first responders to assist personnel on the ground. We are sure that the new arrivals will find our City a great place to call home.”

Since Hurricane Maria and Irma impacted Puerto Rico last September and October respectively, United has provided over $2.4 million in in-kind evacuee travel and shipments of relief supplies, as well as more than $2.8 million in cash donations from employees, customers and corporate match fund, including more than a quarter of a million dollars in support to Newark’s community. While the hurricanes passed through more than two months ago, much of the island and its infrastructure remains largely in need. United and La Casa de Don Pedro are continuing to work to lift Puerto Ricans whose home is still crippled from the effects of both hurricanes. Many of those families are living in New Jersey, home to the third-largest Puerto Rican population in the country, following Florida and New York.

If you or someone you know is a recent arrival from Puerto Rico who is in need of assistance, please contact La Casa de Don Pedro at 973.624.4222.

Another successful #GivingTuesday has come to a close. Hundreds of families and children enjoyed a more festive holiday season, thanks to the dozens of contributors to La Casa de Don Pedro’s  #GivingTuesday campaign.  La Casa, among 50,000+ other partners worldwide, joined in the #GivingTuesday movement as a way to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support.

La Casa de Don Pedro’s #GivingTuesday campaign, which launched on November 28, and continued through December 31. La Casa took on a mission to: raise $5,000 to support our programs & service, provide 500 families with a nourishing, unforgettable holiday meal, and fulfill the holiday toy wishes of the 900 children we educate and support.

By the time La Casa wrapped up its #GivingTuesday campaign, it surpassed its. We are proud to announce that this year’s campaign raised over $12,500, more than doubling our original goal. We collected and distributed holiday meal bags to 502 Newark families, and we fulfilled the holiday wishes of the over 900 kids we educate.

A number of local businesses, organizations and families gave back in huge ways this year. The Essex County Sheriff’s Office, The New Jersey Devils, North Jersey Federal Credit Union, and the Extended Basile Family “adopted” La Casa’s Preschool & Head Start Centers to fulfill each child’s holiday wish and joined the students, families and teachers for special holiday celebrations. In anticipation of their arrival, our kids put together holiday performances to bring forth the spirit of the season. The generosity and contribution of our dedicated donors is testament to their continuous investment in the future of Greater Newark’s Communities and people.

Along with the toy distributions, La Casa distributed over 4,000 pounds of perishable and non-perishable food for Newark residents at our 5th annual Holiday Food Drive!

Beginning bright and early on December 15, a crew of volunteers from the Extended Basile Family, parent volunteers, and La Casa staff, sorted food and prepared 502 bags donated by Shoprite and Trader Joes. With the majority of the goods donated by Table to Table (with donations from Hello Fresh,) Smart Buy Natural Food, and the Extended Basile Family, each bag was filled to the brim with all the necessities for a well-balanced and nutritious holiday meal, including potatoes, pasta, rice, broccoli, carrots, beans, stuffing, fresh spices, sausages, turkey, and ham!

The Basile family’s efforts were bolstered by local schools, businesses and restaurants that made donations or held fundraisers to support our #GivingTuesday campaign: Women in Flavor & Fragrance Commerce, Inc. Holy Trinity School, Smart Buy Natural Foods of Westfield, Basilico of Millburn, Feast Catering of Westfield, The Lermond Company, Oh Brian’s On the Green, IFF, Gorlin Inc. as well as the Townspeople of Kenilworth, Mountainside, Scotch Plains, Westfield among others.

Your investment makes an impact. Through the support of our friends and partners, La Casa de Don Pedro can sustain and develop innovative programs that ignite change and build a stronger Newark community. Your continued generosity and support gives us confidence that the future is bright and our community can and will thrive.

La Casa de Don Pedro Fights Food Insecurity This Holiday Season

Each holiday season La Casa joins the fight to help eliminate food insecurity and hunger in the Greater Newark area by giving just a little more during the Holiday Season, beyond its regular Hunger Relief Initiative.

Food insecurity is a daily struggle that is all too real for too many individuals and families in Greater Newark. According to the 2016 Feeding America “Map the Meal Gap,” 17.4 percent of Essex county residents face food insecurity, the greatest percent of people than in any other county in New Jersey. More shocking, 44% of Newark children live below the federal poverty line and face food insecurity.

Everyone deserves to celebrate the holidays with family and a warm meal, and together with its partners, La Casa worked to make sure more families joined in this tradition.  La Casa collected food donations starting on #GivingTuesday (November 28) through December 14th. The next day, La Casa distributed over 4,000 pounds of perishable and non-perishable foods items for Newark residents!

Beginning bright and early on December 15, a crew of volunteers from the Extended Basile Family, parent volunteers, and La Casa staff, sorted food and prepared 502 bags donated by Shoprite and Trader Joes. With the majority of the goods donated by Table to Table (with donations from Hello Fresh,) Smart Buy Natural Food, and the Extended Basile Family, each bag was filled to the brim with all the necessities for a well-balanced and nutritious holiday meal, including potatoes, pasta, rice, broccoli, carrots, beans, stuffing, fresh spices, sausages, turkey, and ham!

Volunteers, led by Basile Family members Annie Basile and Miriam Silver-Verga, sorted the food and operated assembly line style, and it took no time at all to assemble the bags.  Over the course of the day, families from La Casa’s preschool, Head Start, and community centers throughout Newark came to receive their bags while endlessly thanking us for our help.  One mother said that without our help, her family of six would not have been able to have a nourishing holiday meal to gather around. While another family of nine came to us saying that receiving the holiday meal bag meant that they could now all come together and share in a meal, strengthening their family tradition. Eliminating the fear of food insecurity for families like these is at the root of what we do and reminds us of the true reason for the holiday season.

We are proud to have met the needs of those we serve and are grateful to our supporters for helping us meet our goals.

Together, the evening’s honorees highlighted their excitement about the future of Newark with La Casa de Don Pedro serving a critical supporting role.

 

The Nuñez family, consisting of Domingo, Wendy, Katelyn, Justin and Scarlett shared an inspiring testimonial about La Casa spanning four generations.  Attesting to the family’s triumph over adversity with La Casa de Don Pedro helping to lead the way, the Nuñez family shared how their lives have been touched and impacted by La Casa de Don Pedro over the past 45 years.

 

The evening featured musical entertainment from Newark’s own The Velvet Trio.  La Casa de Don Pedro’s Call for Artist brought forth local artists who showcased their work that spoke to the theme, Together We Rise. Newark in Tune- Small Town Big City and LaQuin and the Family Tree Band gave live performances.  Artists Stanley Gavidia, Georgie MorelRed, and Spencer Frohwirth exhibited their works of art.   The Newark Print Shop offered a print making activity where guests made and took home commemorative 45th Anniversary screen print posters.
