Moorestown Ecumenical Neighborhood Development, Inc. (“MEND”) will host its premier fundraiser on Friday, October 7, 2016 at the Venue at Lenola, 229 North Lenola Road in Moorestown. This annual event sells out quickly and is extremely important to helping MEND achieve its mission.
MEND’s now 47-year-old mission is to maintain and expand the supply of affordable rental housing for low and moderate-income individuals and families, including senior citizens and persons with disabilities, who cannot afford market-rate rental housing in our area. So, be ready for a little “heat” with our featured appetizers of wings from Whistler’s Inn or take it easy with Wing King’s delicious chicken tenders. Georgetti’s will provide a large selection of hors d’oeuvres and a fabulous buffet dinner that will include salmon and filet mignon.
Join us on October 7 for a fun way to help MEND maintain its mission; a casual evening with great food, caricatures, a Chinese auction, and entertainment provided by Soul Joel Productions.
MEND is a private, nonprofit corporation that develops, builds, owns and manages affordable rental housing in southern New Jersey. Established in 1969, MEND currently owns 725 apartments in 29 separate locations in eight towns in the Burlington County region. Two hundred and fifty of these apartments are located at 20 different locations in Moorestown. MEND provides decent, safe and affordable housing for more than 1,300 individuals.
Invitations will be mailed in August but you can purchase your tickets, ad or sponsorship today. Additionally, donations in any amount are welcome. Details can be found at here or by calling the office at (856) 722–7070 ext. 19. Your contribution can be mailed to MEND, Inc. P.O. Box 828, Moorestown, N.J. 08057.
“Everyone deserves a decent, safe and affordable place to call home,” Boyce Adams, MEND Founder, said.
Charitable donations to MEND help keep apartment rents below market levels, thus easing the housing costs of MEND tenants who then can better afford all the other costs of supporting themselves and their families.
