In an effort to engage and support the local nonprofit community, Senator Vin Gopal hosted a roundtable breakfast with representatives from several area organizations.
Hosted at the Perkins Restaurant and Bakery in Eatontown on Monday, April 30, the roundtable breakfast was an opportunity for the Senator to connect with the various vital nonprofit organizations that serve not only the residents of Monmouth County, but the state at large.
“Our local nonprofit organizations are vital to our communities,” said Senator Vin Gopal.
Over 20 local nonprofits attended the roundtable breakfast Monday, including housing alliances, environmental groups, faith groups, food banks and youth mentoring programs, among others.
“In order to ensure these organizations have the resources they need to properly serve the people of New Jersey, it is imperative that we, as legislators, develop an understanding of their needs and challenges. Today was a fantastic opportunity to connect with our nonprofit organizations, learn more about their services and understand their needs,” Sen. Gopal said.
“I look forward to working with these organizations to make sure they can continue to support our residents.”
Senator Gopal was also joined by his District 11 colleague Assemblyman Eric Houghtaling at Monday’s breakfast.
