Project Description

Guidance In Giving Inc. partnered with The Parish Community of Saint Helen in Westfield NJ in 2015. The parish itself will be turning 50 years old in 2018, so Father Michael Saporito used this opportunity to announce the 50th Anniversary Capital Campaign to raise $3,000,000 to help to raise funds to restore and renovate the church building. The growing and vibrant community of St. Helen’s has many projects that need attention in a building that is approaching half a century in age. Most pressing is replacing the entire roof of the church as well as adding handicapped accessible bathrooms. This very positive and welcoming community of more than 4,000 families embraced the challenge. At the end of just 3 months of campaigning, more than $4,000,000 has been pledged!
