Passaic County’s municipalities are receiving donations from three educational associations of Passaic County Technical Vocational Schools. The Education Association (PCTVEA), School Office Employees Association, and Custodian/Maintenance Association have teamed up to secure $16,600 in grant money from the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) Pride in Public Education funds. The money has been used to buy meals for frontline workers at the William Paterson University coronavirus testing site and the county Sheriff’s Department, as well as to purchase food and/or much-needed supplies for each of the 16 towns of Passaic County that send their students to either PCTI or the DCL STEM Academy.
Our secretary, Patrick Bennett, put together a press release to highlight the efforts of our associations and members and reached out to several news organizations to seek publication. It was published in two local newspapers, Wayne Today and Passaic Valley Today, and can be currently viewed on the TAPinto Wayne website, TAPinto Hawthorne website, TAPinto Paterson website, and TAPinto Passaic Valley website.
