Northern NJ Community Foundation Collected and Donated Art Supplies to Teaneck Creek Conservancy

(Englewood, New Jersey; May 9, 2017) -- The Northern New Jersey Community Foundation's (NNJCF) Community Engagement Program collected and donated art supplies for the Teaneck Creek Conservancy, a nonprofit organization based in Teaneck, New Jersey. Bergen County residents donated needed art supplies to the NNJCF and at its ArtsBergen initiative's second 2017 Connect the Dots networking event -- Lights, Camera...Network.

In observance of Earth Month, the NNJCF presented the collection of art supplies, including watercolor sets, markers, crayons, glue, glue sticks, construction paper, pipe cleaners, craft sticks, felt sheets, tissue paper, and yarn, to the Teaneck Creek Conservancy on April 26 at Fairleigh Dickinson University's Student Union Building in Teaneck, New Jersey. Artists, arts administrators, writers, business owners, nonprofit representatives, and community and municipal leaders participated in the drive.

The Teaneck Creek Conservancy will use the collection of art supplies in their art and science programs for children.

"At Teaneck Creek, we use our wetland park as inspiration to promote arts education specifically focused on environmental themes. With this donation of supplies, we will be able to host more programs and serve more of our Bergen County Community! The Conservancy is very appreciative of Northern New Jersey Community Foundation's support of our eco-art focused mission during Earth Week," said Alexa Marques, Executive Director, Teaneck Creek Conservancy.

The collection fulfilled the NNJCF's mission to promote cooperation and civic engagement in the community to address pressing issues and concerns. "The Teaneck Creek Conservancy’s children’s education program and its environmental concerns present the ideal opportunity to show how the arts can respond to multiple needs. The arts are a universal language that all can speak. Bringing children and the environment together to ‘speak art language’ is the kind of opportunity the Foundation wants to support," said Michael Shannon, President, NNJCF.
