The Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center of Morristown (CSK) presented Impact 100 Garden State with its Community Leadership Award on April 14 at the CSK’s annual Share the Bounty reception in Morristown. CSK Executive Director Teresa Connolly (center) thanked the Impact 100 membership for providing a $100,000 grant that enabled CSK and America’s Grow-a-Row to help alleviate hunger in Morris County.
Impact 100 Garden State is now 244 members strong . At our annual Membership Celebration, 120 new and renewing members gathered to meet each other and hear from our two 2015 grant recipients. This summer more than 70 of our members will be serving on the grant committees that select the finalists for balloting in November.
This year we are able to offer three grants to nonprofits: two $100,000 grants and one $44,000 grant. The grant review process has begun—and will culminate at our Annual Awards Meeting on November 2 when the finalists make their presentations and our members cast their votes for the three recipients.
