The Minuteman Press in Bloomfield, NJ helps the Gem Project reach 10,000 homes

Bloomfield, NJ – May 30, 2012 –  In operation for 19 years, the Minuteman Press in Bloomfield, NJ has always held a high standard of commitment for quality service.  Freddie Pokrzywa, owner of the Bloomfield location, and their manager Sam Olivero have demonstrated community service beyond their store doors. They are set to release a mailer  next week to 10,000 Bloomfield residents. Pokrzywa and Olivero have chosen to personally donate an AD space in its mailer for  The Gem Project not-for-profit organization.

When asked, Why the Gem Project?  Pokrzywa said, “I believe in their mission. I also believe that giving back to the community keeps the community strong. I believe in what the Gem Project is doing.”

The  Minuteman Press of Bloomfield, NJ are also proud sponsors of the Gem Project Define Real Beauty Traveling Exhibit. The recent campaign has paved a way to explore and deepen the conversation about beauty and its presently narrow perception in the media. Earlier this month, it made a debut at the New Jersey Institute of Technology for the 1st annual YES Conference,  held by NABFE. The YES conference provided an empowerment arena for young teen girls to  network with highly influential women of service and business. There were over 18 workshops being held from 8:30 – 3:00 PM, with an expected attendance of 200 teen girls. The keynote speaker was Leanna Archer, the youngest person to ever ring the NASDAQ Stock market opening bell and successful teenpreneur.

The Minuteman Press is located at 625 Bloomfield Avenue. Bloomfield, NJ 07003.  Their hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM.
