To the Editor:

Week w/o Violence

As a community we have an opportunity to take a stand against violence by participating in the 12th Annual YWCA Week Without Violence, which begins on Sunday, October 14.

The YWCA has a long history of helping women who have been victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. Our mission is to eliminate racism and empower women. We are a voice against racism and all forms of hate crimes. Please join the Princeton and Trenton YWCAs, and YWCAs across the country, as we unite individuals against violence, declaring “Enough!” Let others know that violence is not acceptable and make a peace pledge for non-violence.

Pick up at pledge at the Princeton YWCA or the Trenton YWCA.

Bird Houses Help

Affordable Houses

‘There’s No Place Like Home,” the theme of Princeton Community Housing’s 40th anniversary celebration and birdhouse auction (U.S. 1, September 19), is now more of a reality than ever for everyone needing affordable housing.

Thanks to everybody who helped to make our recent event a rousing success. With 124 birdhouses from renowned architects, artists, sculptors, and talented amateurs, crafty birdhouse stand makers, great publicity throughout the local press, and the hard work of dozens of volunteers, funds were raised to enable PCH to continue its mission, which is “to provide, manage and advocate for affordable housing.”

We especially want to thank ETS for providing such generous support for our event, and we must also recognize the close to 400 attendees who made the occasion such fun.

And finally, on behalf of the Board of Trustees of PCH, we want to recognize the incredible hard work and imagination of our executive director, Sandra Persichetti, which made the celebration so successful.

As the largest provider of affordable housing in Princeton, with 463 units at Princeton Community Village, Elm Court, Harriet Bryan House, and Griggs Farm, accommodating families and seniors, PCH looks forward to continuing to serve the community for many years to come.
