Business Leaders of Tomorrow Lend a Helping Hand

Volunteers with Business Leaders of Tomorrow (BLT) at Fairleigh Dickinson University added a special flair to our Mentoring Youth program’s Halloween party, helping to serve food, make crafts, play games and dance with scores of kids in costumes ranging from the festive to the frightful.

In addition to holding social and educational events at FDU, members of BLT also enjoy volunteering to help in the community.  “Working with the Volunteer Center of Bergen County was a very rewarding experience,” says Jill DiMaggio, BLT president.  “What they do for those in need is so generous. We saw that they put a lot of hard work and dedication into making what they do the best.”

“We were happy to donate our time and efforts for such an important cause,” she continues. “All the work paid off when we saw the smiles on their faces. We all had a great time. We look forward to helping at Mentoring Youth the holiday party in December!”
