Gateway Community Resource Center is a new nonprofit opened in October of 2022 in Boonton, NJ, spawned by and affiliated with Loaves & Fishes Community Food Pantry, a successful 3-year 501(c)(3) operation now serving over 125 families weekly. (www.lfcfp.org)
Gateway’s Leadership Team is comprised of five hard-working volunteers, each are residents of the greater Boonton area. The team brings decades of work experience and volunteerism.
A Philadelphia native, Harold came to New Jersey for his graduate education, and remained to complete 40 years’ service as a Presbyterian pastor in Essex and Morris Counties, retiring in 2003 after completing 25 years as pastor of Boonton’s First Presbyterian Church.
In retirement, he finds his skills and experience fit well with offering his time in volunteer leadership of non-profit organizations: Highlands-Nairobi Presbyterian Partnership; Boonton Main Street, Inc.; and now, Gateway.
Gateway offers internships for students to gain experience, build their resumes and sharpen their skills. We partner with Morris County Votech and other area schools to help students complete their requirements and contribute to our community. Opportunities exist for individuals in the roles of webmaster, marketing, social media and much more!!
