This is the last name change. Nanuet Cares started at Nanuet HS and then changed to JCC Cares after moving to JCC Rockland. However, this year, it's back at Nanuet HS with the new and permanent name of "Make a Difference Rockland."
Despite the name changes, the purpose has not changed. This event still brings dozens of non-profits together under one roof to allow the public to come and learn more about giving back to the community they live in.
The event is on Monday, Oct. 29 at the Nanuet Senior High School gym from 3:30 – 7 p.m.
This free public meet and greet event will have more than 50 non-profit organizations. Make a Difference Rockland provides the community with a chance to learn about non-profit programs and services, and membership, volunteer and donor opportunities.
To keep the message of this this event going, there will be a film presentation of "A Small Act" just next door at the Nanuet Library. Presented in cooperation with Friends of the Nanuet Library and in coordination with the annual event Make A Difference Rockland, this is a story about just how powerful a gesture of kindness and generosity can be, and that education is perhaps the most generous gift of all. The presentation is also co-sponsored by Rivertown Film
Introduced by Dennis Lynch, attorney and General Counsel to the Nyack-based Giving to Ghana Foundation. The 2010 is 88 minutes long and admission is free.
Don't worry, it's not just for the adults. There's also a family-friendly concert at the high school that same night at 7:30 p.m: Schoolhouse Rock! Bob Dorough will be performing as well as vocal performances from Nanuet students.
It's $10 a ticket and tickets can be purchased at the circulation desk of the Nanuet Public Library and also the Nanuet FRC Center. Proceeds will benefit both the Nanuet FRC and Friends of the Nanuet Public Library
"I would love for the whole community to come out and support this great cause. It'll be a fun night with a lot of volunteer opportunities to learn about," said RoseAnn Mercado of the Nanuet FRC.
