The Neighborhood Center is having a Chair-ity Event on May 3rd at QCB 27 N. 7th St, Allentown, PA 18102 4:00 – 7:00 PM. Tickets are $25.00.
The Chair-ity event helps support programming at The Neighborhood Center with the goal of helping keep kids off the streets and provide positive programming for the families that attend.
With grants, fundraising, and corporate/individual giving last year, The Neighborhood Center continues to serve over 100 youth ages 4-18 with programming including a Pre-K class, after school programs and summer programming. The guiding principles of all its youth programming are to provide a safe haven, promote positive life choices and promote and strengthen community relationships.
The Neighborhood Center operates with an employed staff of seven – an Executive Director, two (2) Elementary Program Coordinators, a Pre-K Teacher and two (2) assistants, a Teens Coordinator and an assistant – and a host of committed volunteers. Volunteers come from area colleges, local church and civic groups, and Lehigh Valley businesses and corporations; in addition, concerned parents and community members also volunteer.
All staff and volunteers are required to complete a child protection/abuse form and complete a criminal record check. Since all programs and activities are provided with the help of volunteers, The Neighborhood Center wants to ensure the safety of its children.
