The Verona Municipal Alliance Committee (VMAC) provides educational programming and prevention outreach to the citizens of Verona. Its funding comes from a grant through the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse with matching funds from the Township of Verona. VMAC was authorized by the Township of Verona in 1989 to promote the prevention efforts of the State of NJ at the community level.
Verona Volunteer Night
Please stop by the VMAC table at Verona Volunteer Night on Tuesday, January 24th from 7-9pm in the Verona Community Center Ballroom, 880 Bloomfield Avenue.
Volunteers are an essential component to any strong community. The purpose of this Open House (hosted by the Township of Verona and Sustainable Verona) is to create a space to highlight all of its dedicated organizations.
All Verona residents are encouraged to come and explore the various volunteer possibilities available in Verona. The event will be structured to give people the chance to meet face to face with members of each organization to discuss membership opportunities. The night will also act as a networking event for the organizations with the hope that new collaborations might be formed.
VMAC sponsors programs in collaboration with the Board of Education, Verona Community Center, Health & Recreation Departments, Verona Police Department and local community groups.
VMAC has organized a Safe Homes program since the 1980’s. Parents who sign the pledge commit to providing a safe, alcohol free environment.
Since 2003, VMAC coordinates Family Night in October and March, a night free of schedules so families can enjoy some down time with each other. Dinner Does Make A Difference!
VMAC programs include school clubs, parent workshops, senior citizen wellness, coach trainings, and Ropes Course Challenge.
