The Affordable Housing Alliance and Community Partners Celebrate NeighborWorks Week 2022
With the help and support of our neighbors, a local community was refreshed and revitalized just in time for the warm summer months.
Neptune, NJ, July 11, 2022 – The Affordable Housing Alliance (AHA) and a large contingent of community partners, business leaders, and local volunteers came together on Tuesday, June 7th, 2022 to celebrate NeighborWorks America’s annual NeighborWorks Week festivities. NeighborWorks Week is an annual week of service that showcases how, together with residents, the NeighborWorks network strengthens communities. As a Chartered Member of NeighborWorks America, the AHA’s tradition has been to focus on a local neighborhood and bring together partners and staff for a day of volunteering and community building. This year’s event saw dozens of individuals enjoy a beautiful June day and helped usher in Summer for all the residents of the community.
This year’s location was the AHA’s Pinetree Manufactured Home Community located in Eatontown NJ. There, our team spent hours refreshing flower beds, cutting back and removing troublesome shrubbery and easing access between residences. Volunteers from our local financial partners and home improvement suppliers remained engrossed with the Pinetree Community Center, not only providing multiple fresh coats of paint to the trim and exterior but also revitalizing the playground and refreshing the mulch adjacent to it. Over the course of seven hours, the staff from the Affordable Housing Alliance and all of the volunteers who contributed brought a sense of community and selflessness to the Pinetree Community.
While NeighborWorks Week celebrates the collective impact of the NeighborWorks America network, it’s also a time to acknowledge the volunteers, business partners, and national and local leaders who support our mission each and every day. The Affordable Housing Alliance is forever indebted to the following community partners and sponsors who helped make NeighborWorks Day 2022 such an unforgettable experience:
WAWA | ADL | Home Depot | Mazza Recycling | J & J Construction | Walmart | Lowes | Fanagle the Bagle | Charles Chips | Jersey Mike’s Subs | Wegmans | Pepsi Co. | Dunkin’ | Bam-Bam
