For several years the Community of Friends in Action has received generous grants from the Leonia Community Chest. The grants are awarded at the annual Community Chest Agency night, which this year was held on Thursday, March 2, 2017, at the United Methodist Church of Leonia. Margaret White, Chair, made a presentation about the current challenges that CoFiA is facing in this uncertain environment. CoFiA members Pete Shanno and Norm Smith accepted the award on behalf of our organization.
Various organizations in Leonia, including the Community Chest, and many individual Leonians, have been steadfast in their support of CoFiA. Without this help we would not be able to provide assistance to the immigrant community in our area, offer educational programs to the community in general. Many thanks!
