3.23.09 USA Service Project

Day of Service: “Saving Maplewood 1 house at a time, Part 2”

Started: 3.23.09
Event: Day of Service – “Saving Maplewood 1 house at a time”
Date Ended: June 6, 2009

Action: Foreclosure and Eviction information distribution extended to Springfield Avenue business locations.

Event Supporters: (organizations that provided resources/covered the cost of additional resources)

  • Peter N. Fresulone, CFO, Maplewood Township
  • Joseph F. Manning, Township Administrator, Maplewood Township

Highlights: 600 documents copied for distribution (thank you April =) by our township + brochures from the Center for Responsible Lending to be distributed.  Locations will receive a packet of documents that will include 10 or 20 fliers and an additional 5 or 10 brochures.  Not all locations that receive fliers will receive brochures due to a limited quantity.

Event goal: To distribute packets of literature to new locations on Springfield Avenue, two new locations in Maplewood Village, and also to locations from the 1.17.09 distribution which have received frequent traffic.

The foreclosure resource listing on our Townships site has been extended! Links found on this blog have been provided upon request and our township site has been upgraded. Pretty cool. Check it out.
