Newark, NJ, November 02, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- JB Dondolo, Inc., a 501(3)c organization based out of Dallas, Texas, will deliver six pallets of bottled water to Bishop Jethro James’ Paradise Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey. On November 4, 2019, board member Patricia Ellis will be on the front lines with the church to distribute the water.
Newark has been experiencing a water crisis, with lead leaching into the water, and while a project is underway to replace the old lead pipes, it will take up to 2-1/2 years to have the fix in place. Newark’s residents are in critical need, and bottled water is being distributed to help provide clean water.
Paradise Baptist Church is located at 348-353 15th Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. The money for the pallets was raised during Equanimity’s annual Gala benefitting the JB Dondolo Charity.
