Lift Yourself Off the Street: Newark NJ Organization UCC Helps In The Fight Against Poverty
Karim Bukhadurov from Great.com interviewed United Community Corporation as part of their 'Great.com Talks With...' podcast. This series is an antidote to negative news stories that aims to shed light on organizations and experts whose work is making a positive impact on the world.
Listen to the whole interview to find out how you can help people in Newark help themselves to lift themselves out of poverty and dependency. You can also help donate to the United Community Corporation’s cause to end poverty in Newark, NJ. The fight against poverty is not so easily won, but it needs all the help it can get.
