Letter From Our Executive Director
One of the highlights of 2021 so far has definitely been welcoming our Summer Campers back to NECC! After having to cancel the program last summer, it felt so great to offer the camp this year. Summer Camp is so much more than just a fun activity for kids. Our program offers a safe environment for children while their parents are working, mentoring relationships, and countless opportunities to try new things.

On Friday, July 10th, Northeast Community Center hosted a drive-by Senior Luncheon for the senior citizens of the community. After having to pause our Connecting Seniors Program due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NECC wanted to find a way to connect with the seniors of of the community so we developed a drive-by senior luncheon parade and delivered a total of 45 meals and COVID care packages.
