The Viola Blythe Center relies on the generosity of residents, schools, service organizations, churches and businesses for volunteers, funds and supplies. Donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated. During the holiday season, we need even more donations to help provide additional Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for hundreds of families not able to celebrate the joy of these holidays. We hope you can find it in your heart to make a worthwhile contribution.

Giving for Living campaign – Viola Blythe will receive from $250-$1000 for every roof or solar system purchased by Newark citizens depending on the purchase size. “Giving for Living is a practical way to drive funds to great community organizations like Viola Blythe,” says Jim Petersen, CEO and founder of PetersenDean Roofing and Solar Systems, “We all can’t spend the time or money like the volunteers at Viola Blythe so by participating in our fundraising program, homeowners can help others as a by-product of their purchase.”
