Members and supporters of the Northern New Jersey Business Volunteer Council (BVC) will celebrate thirteen successful years of service to the community on Wednesday, February 20th with a cocktail reception from 5 - 7 pm hosted by Hackensack law firm Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman & Leonard, PA.

Tickets to the event are $20 and can be obtained by contacting Ellen Lutvak at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 201-489-9454 Ext. 133 by February 13.
Since its founding in 2000, the BVC has mobilized tens of thousands of corporate volunteers to help children and families by addressing pressing issues like hunger, literacy and education, delivering over $1.3 million in resources to the community.
Membership in the BVC provides companies with opportunity for networking, professional development, community impact, recognition as a good corporate citizen and free or discounted fees for BVC seminars, events and service activities.
“Now is a great time for companies to join the BVC,” says Amanda Missey, BVC Manager. “BVC member companies will have free access to nationally-recognized leaders in the realm of corporate social responsibility. Their employees will have more opportunities for meaningful hands-on involvement, including county-wide volunteer events and customized projects. Employee participation in hands-on volunteer projects are a great way to increase job satisfaction, build strong teams and get recognition for the company’s community involvement efforts.”
