Help the Essex County Legal Aid Association, a small Newark-based legal services nonprofit organization, earn up to a $15,000 grant in this 24-hour "Twive & Receive" fundraising challenge. There are more than 250 local 501(c)(3)s from across the country participating in this program and trying to gain their communities' support. ECLAA needs to be among the top three fundraisers on June 14 to earn a grant from the challenge's sponsor. ECLAA was selected to represent Newark in this challenge.
Please donate on June 14 to help keep free emergency legal assistance on civil matters accessible to indigent residents of Essex County in 2012. ECLAA provides free services to more than 1,000 clients and their families each year. The majority of our caseload involves landlord/tenant matters. Please spread the word about ECLAA in general -- and please do so in particular today about this fundraising challenge.
