Each year, countless Hudson County families spend thousands of dollars on unproven treatments for their children with autism. ASAT’s mission is to disseminate accurate information about autism treatments so that all families are able to identify and choose effective, scientifically-validated interventions. HOPES CAP, Inc. is also committed to ensuring that parents access accurate information to help their children realize their full potential. Both organizations believe strongly that children with autism deserve nothing less!

Please help the Hoboken Food Pantry – From the folks at United Hoboken Synagogue

The folks at USH (United Hoboken Synagogue) want your help to replenish the Hoboken Food Pantry.  Here is their note below….

As you know, every year at this time USH collects hametz from us as we clean out our kitchens and pantries. We ask you to bring the hametz to the synagogue; we give it to the Hoboken Food Pantry.

This year, we are asking you to do a little bit more. The picture below was taken last week at the pantry. You can see that the cupboards are bare! The only food April Harris, the Director, has is those little piles of jars of peanut butter and cans.

We ask that you buy a few extra items for the pantry, and bring it with your hametz (or just bring those extra items) to the synagogue. We will bring it to the Food Pantry for our neighbors in need.

Specifically, these are the items needed:

-Shalom and hag sameach

United Synagogue of Hoboken

115 Park Avenue, Hoboken, NJ 07030
(201) 659-4000
(201) 659-2614 (fax)

Update on Helping 300 Washington Street Fire Victims and Organizational Meeting Tonight at the Village Pourhouse 7-8:30pm

300 Washington Street Living Room

Rory Chadwick is try to help organize relief efforts for the fire victims of 300 Washington Street fire in Hoboken that happened last Sunday.  The photo above is actually from the living room of Tiffany S. after the fire and as you can see she and Fred lost everything. They couple currently have a place to stay but others are still looking and it has been reported that 9 people did not have insurance. Here is Rory’s note below…

“Hi everyone

I received several emails the last 2 days from both the displaced and Christopher Burk of RELB Property Management LLC. which is the management for 300 Washington Street.  Approximately 12 laptop computers are needed desperately at this time according to emails I have received.  In addition digital cameras, sundries such as tooth paste, colognes and perfumes, soap, shampoos, etc. are needed.  In addition several of the displaced residents need a place to stay locally and if anyone has a room for rent in their home or has an apartment vacant that those displaced can use free of charge for a month or 2 that would be great.

Tonight at the Village Pourhouse from 7pm-8:30pm we are holding a volunteers needed meeting.  Community residents can attend and learn how to be involved both short term and long term in assisting with ongoing efforts to help those displaced.

If you could all share this on your respected forums, sites, blogs and publications I believe it would be greatly appreciated by those affected by the tragic fire. 

For those that want to donate and can not attend the event  March 2nd can visit hobokenrotary.org, on the home page is a link to donate online.  For those that want to volunteers and can not attend tonight’s meeting can email helpinghoboken@gmail.com.

Thanks everyone!

- Rory Cadwick”
