Thanks from Community Soup Kitchen & Outreach Center


Thank you so much for organizing and hosting a fabulous event on Saturday evening — we really appreciate all you did  to make it such a successful night!  The donations really piled up and it was amazing to see the generosity of the community to support the Community Soup Kitchen — all of which will go to help our many neighbors in need right here locally.

Thank you — every detail was perfect and I know that it takes a ton of time and organization to pull off such a successful event.  Thanks so much for ALL that you both did.  It is always wonderful and inspiring to work with Suzanne and her group.  And Karen, it was so nice to meet you — many thanks to you and your husband for everything!

Looking forward to working with both of you in the future.  Have a great week!

Silver Awards

On September 9th, Michaela and Genevieve Santasieri were presented their Girl Scout Silver Award by Suzanne Stigers, President and Founder of Coupons for the Community. It was the culmination of many more than the required 50 hours needed to complete the award and more than a year and a half of participation in the project.

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award that can be earned by Cadette-level Girl Scouts. The goal of the award is to complete “a project that leaves a lasting impact on the community.”

Although the girls have received their award, Michaela and Genevieve still participate in the weekly meetings, collecting and clipping coupons, and shopping for the Star of the Sea Food Pantry in Lake Hopatcong and will, most likely, continue through their High School years. They also participate in CFC fundraising activities, as well as programs run by CFC, including Cooking with Coupons, where they babysit for the parents that attend the program.

Michaela and Genevieve have come to know and love many of the warm and wonderful shoppers for Coupons for the Community and can’t imagine ever leaving their positions.
