Withum Hosts Thanksgiving Dinner For Harmony House Families
Accounting firm Withum hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for the residents of Harmony House, New Community’s transitional housing facility for homeless families, Nov. 20 at St. Joseph Plaza. Volunteers from Withum cooked the meal, which consisted of traditional Thanksgiving foods, and served the guests in attendance.
For more than 50 years, New Community Corporation has walked the walk of social justice, helping residents of inner cities improve the quality of their lives to reflect individual God-given dignity and personal achievement. After all, NCC was birthed from the literal ashes of the civil disorders of 1967 by a core group of Black community leaders and White allies, including a young priest named William Linder. Together, they modeled through word and deed the moral principle and reality that Black Lives Matter.
Today, just as in 1967, NCC joins in solidarity with all those who seek justice and an end to police brutality and racism.
