Support our Village Center this Holiday Season


Dear Neighbor,

Have you noticed the changes around downtown South Orange lately? We sure hope so. Because this past year has been the most successful one on record for the South Orange Village Center Alliance (SOVCA): helping to establish eight new businesses, including fan favorites Jackie & Son and Miti Miti, attracting more attendees to our community events like PlayDay, revitalizing Spiotta Park, and establishing our first-ever Business Summit to help ensure our local businesses continue to thrive.

These changes were in no small part due to your past support of SOVCA, South Orange's nonprofit organization that works 365-days-a-year to improve our downtown and our businesses. And as we work together to cultivate the downtown South Orange that we know you deserve, we'll need your help more than ever.

That is why, today, we ask that you make a donation of $50, $100 or more to help SOVCA serve you and the South Orange community by making our downtown stronger than ever!

As exciting as 2018 has been, we have plans to do even more in 2019 including:

  • Recruiting even more new and exciting businesses

  • Hosting creative and fun shopping events

  • Beautifying our district by introducing new murals, painting street poles and adding new plantings

  • And so much more!

We need you to achieve these goals so we hope you'll consider making your tax-deductible donation to SOVCA as 2018 comes to an end. You can donate quickly, easily, and securely online by clicking here or clicking on the Donate button below, or by mailing your check to: SOVCA, 76 South Orange Avenue, Suite 302, South Orange, NJ 07079.

On behalf of SOVCA, thank you for, once again, supporting us. Your donation will surely help us make 2019 an even better year for our merchants and for you, one of our cherished residents.

Best wishes for a very happy holiday season and a very prosperous new year.


Bob Zuckerman, Executive Director

Steven Pedigo, Chairman

P.S. This is the only time of the year that we've asked our supporters like you for financial support, so we hope you'll consider donating once again before December 31st!
