Housing Initiatives of Princeton Thanks One53 for Their “Rose for a Cause” Event
To the Editor:
The Board of Trustees of Housing Initiatives of Princeton (HIP) would like to thank the owners and staff of One53 in Rocky Hill for their “Rose for a Cause” event that kicked off on July 14, Bastille Day. One53 raised $1,000 for HIP by donating the proceeds from every sale of a glass of AIX rose poured from an enormous 15-liter Nebuchadnezzer, and we are truly grateful!
HIP is an all-volunteer, community-based organization that provides transitional housing to working families in the Princeton area. HIP’s members are concerned about homelessness and the unmet need for affordable and low-income housing in Princeton. HIP is a 501(c)(3) organization that started assisting families in 2004.
Rose for a Cause was a wonderful example of local businesses and non-profits collaborating to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
