EDISON, NJ – Municipal employees raised $8,240 to benefit programs that Autism Speaks-New Jersey sponsors throughout the Garden State, according to the town’s fundraising organizer, fire Capt. Andrew Toth.

Toth recently presented a check to Kristen Apen, the field development manager for Autism Speaks-NJ, at the Edison Municipal Complex.

They were joined during the presentation by Mayor Thomas Lankey, Edison Township Council members and a host of township employees who helped raise the money during April’s fundraising drive.

Edison’s contribution to Autism Speaks-NJ was collected during National Autism Awareness Month by members of the town’s International Federation of Firefighters Local 1197 and Local 2883, Edison PBA Local 75, and a number of non-union township employees.
