LONG BRANCH, NJ – The Long Branch Concordance Family Success Center is pleased to announce its annual Community Garden Opening  to be held on April 25th, 2015.  This event will offer families an opportunity to cultivate their own garden plot and grow healthy fruits and vegetables at no cost to them.  This free event will offer activities for families as well as a shared breakfast.   Service providers from around Monmouth County will be on hand to distribute updated information and let families know about resources available to them.  This event will take place at the  7th Avenue Community garden, located on 7th Avenue between Broadway and Joline, Long Branch, NJ, from 9:30 am—1:30 pm and is part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

“April is a time to celebrate the important role that communities play in protecting children,” stated Lisa Wilson, Executive Director of the Long Branch Concordance Family Success Center.  “Everyone’s participation is critical. Focusing on ways to build and promote the protective factors, in every interaction with children and families, is the best thing our community can do to prevent child maltreatment and promote optimal child development.”

All are welcome!  If you are a service provider interested in participating in this event or a community member or group who would like to volunteer, please contact Elizabeth Walter, Volunteer and Community Resource Coordinator at 732.571.167 ext. 311 or email [email protected]

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This month and throughout the year, Long Branch Concordance Family Success Center encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making Monmouth County a better place for children and families. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help promote children’s social and emotional well-being and prevent child maltreatment within families and communities.
