Griggstown Farm Workday

We were at Griggstown Farm picking farm fresh zucchini, cucumbers and green peppers on Friday with several of our community volunteers.  We certainly are grateful to our generous provider, Griggstown Farm, for the bounty of fresh produce and our community volunteers, who do such a great job picking vegetables!

Bentley/Bloomberg/Norz Hill Farm Workdays

We are so thankful to the “BOB” (Best of Bloomberg) employee volunteer community giving teams that came out with us to Norz Hill Farm on July 28 and 29th!  The many helping hands that worked in the beautiful farm fields of fresh produce who strung tomato plants, picked fresh farm produce, then washed, dried and packed the produce were so helpful.  We accomplished so much work together and we certainly are grateful. Thank you Norz Hill Farm and Bloomberg.

Bloomberg – We Thank You!

We certainly are thankful for the volunteers from Bloomberg who provided helping hands at our Norz Hill Farm workdays.  The two teams of Bloomberg volunteers worked so hard along with Bentley volunteers staking and stringing tomatoes and picking vegetables in the beautiful fields at Norz Hill Farm.  So much was accomplished thanks to many helping hands helping provide for families in the Bentley universe. Thank you to all volunteers and Norz Hill Farm.

Financial Seminar for Participants

Bentley held another financial seminar on June 26, 2014 for the second half of our participant families. Preparing a workable budget for their households, our facilitator, George Jarvis, walked them through their budgets, explaining everything from causes of financial stress, financial literacy to managing debt, fees to avoid, credit cards and even covered a section on employment and provided resources to help them.

Thank you to George for these two important financial seminar classes, Pastor Tony and the community of faith at Montgomery United Methodist Church, the venue location and our generous providers of refreshments:  Dunkin Donuts of Manville, Thomas Sweet, ShopRite of Hillsborough, Trader Joe’s and Costco.  We certainly are grateful.
