ICC's Van Buren Office is Destroyed Due to Fire


Due to a fire late Tuesday evening, February 25th, ICC's Van Buren Office has been severely damaged and is currently closed. 


Thankfully, no one was injured in the fire.


ICC has suffered a devastating blow as many of the organization's archives and photos were damaged and are irreplaceable. 


The cause of the fire is still under investigation. 


ICC's office housed the Offices of the Executive Director, Finance, Administrator, Development, Parks Programming and Disaster Relief.  Click here for new contact information. 





As ICC struggles to recover from this devastating fire,  your support is greatly appreciated.  Your donation will help us offset the costs of office furniture and electronics replacement, clean up, set up of temporary work spaces and other expenses.


To make a donation please visit our fundraising page: 


To donate by check, please mail to:

Last year ICC helped over 1,000 Ironbound residents file their tax returns at no cost!


Participants received $2.2 million in tax refunds and were able to benefit from $1.67 million in Federal and State Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC). 


Since most Ironbound residents shop locally for food, clothing, furniture, etc., much of these funds were reinvested back into our community!
