Pascale Sykes Foundation Grantee Collaboration Honored
The Non Profit Development Center of Southern New Jersey in partnership with SNJ Business People held the Non Profit Awards Reception at Adelphia Restaurant on March 2, 2016 where the English Creek-Tilton Road Community Shuttle was honored as the Best Collaborative Effort for 2015.
The English Creek-Tilton Road Community Shuttle, a deviated fixed-route service in Egg Harbor Township and the City of Northfield, serves the general public and makes connections to NJ Transit bus routes from outlying areas for only $1.00 per ride. The shuttle is a partnership between The County of Atlantic, The Pascale Sykes Foundation, the South Jersey Transportation Authority, Family Service Association, NJ TRANSIT and Cross County Connection Transportation Management Association. The Pascale Sykes Foundation has funded the shuttle for five years, and has recently expanded the effort to include a Route 54/40 Shuttle.
The Nonprofit Development Center of Southern New Jersey is dedicated to providing opportunities for enhancing the work of Southern New Jersey nonprofits and their leaders through technical assistance, information-sharing, education and networking. The NPO Award was created to recognize Southern New Jersey’s Non Profit leaders. Award winners in each category received a $250 stipend for the charity of their choice. The English Creek-Tilton Road Community Shuttle donated their stipend in support of Family Service Association.
