Sparta Business Owner Visits Preschool

Sparta business owner Lorena Sergent recently returned for another visit to the Little Sprouts Early Learning Center to read several books to the children as part of the center’s Celebrity Reader program. “I loved the opportunity to see the great work that Project Self-Sufficiency is doing in our community,” remarked Sergent.   “It was a pleasure to read to the class at Little Sprouts.” The Little Sprouts Early Learning Center is operated by Project Self-Sufficiency, a local non-profit agency which offers a wide variety of services to families in northwestern New Jersey.   The daycare and preschool facility features separate classrooms for each age group, from infancy through preschool.   Fully-qualified teachers are available in each classroom and the child-teacher ratio adheres to or exceeds state standards.   Each classroom has new equipment, as well as learning centers for dramatic play, computers, science, housekeeping, sand and water play, reading, and music.   T

Volunteers and Dresses Needed for Annual Prom Shop

Project Self-Sufficiency is seeking donations of new and gently-used formal wear, including prom dresses, bridesmaids’ dresses, gowns for mothers-of-the-bride, evening bags, jewelry, wraps and shawls, as well as shoes in good condition for display in the agency’s annual “Sister-to-Sister” Prom Shop.   Dresses must be dry cleaned and on a hanger.   In the shop, which is housed on Project Self-Sufficiency’s Newton campus, gowns and accessories are displayed in a boutique-like setting, and girls are invited to select shoes, wraps and jewelry to complement their dress.   Volunteers are needed to assist teen girls with selecting gowns and accessories during the prom shop, which will be set up at select schools during March and at Project Self-Sufficiency during early April. This year, the Sister-to-Sister Prom Shop will be taken on the road on board PSS Journey, the agency’s mobile services vehicle, prior to setting up its usual location at Project Self-Sufficiency.   Pop-up
