Konica Minolta Reaffirms its Commitment to Supporting Underserved Families with a 21K Donation to Oasis
Ramsey, NJ. – March 23, 2015 – Konica Minolta announced today that it will continue its support of local communities with a $21,000 donation to Paterson, NJ based non-profit, Oasis, a haven for women and children aimed at breaking the cycle of poverty through programs designed to feed, clothe, educate and empower those in need.
The donation will allow Oasis to support even more women who enter their doors hoping to change their lives by learning English, earning their high school equivalency, improving their computer skills, or preparing for the workforce. They will also be able to serve more children and teens looking for a safe place after school to do their homework, learn new things, build their self-confidence, and apply to college.
“We are so very grateful for the support of Konica Minolta,” said Jennifer Brady, Oasis Executive Director. “Their commitment to supporting the transformation of circumstances within the local communities they serve finds a natural synergy with our work at Oasis. This donation will allow us to support even more women who enter our doors hoping to change their lives by learning English, earning their high school equivalency, improving their computer skills, or preparing for the workforce.
