EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Harvey, Irma, and Maria have all made themselves unwelcome in our American home.  So has the growing opioid addiction crisis that plagues so many people in our country, especially here in Middlesex County.  In the face of these and other obstacles, the upcoming holiday season presents a challenge for many Americans, both far away and right here in East Brunswick.

As a response to the needs of so many this year, Mayor Brad Cohen will host a live, interactive Virtual Town Hall at 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 19th.  The event will stream live on the township Facebook page.  

The topic of this town hall will be "Opportunities for Charitable Giving During the Holiday Season." The East Brunswick Township Administration is aware that interest in charitable giving tends to peak around the holidays at the end of the year, beginning with Thanksgiving and has organized this opportunity for individuals and groups to become aware of the many avenues their generosity can take..

Mayor Cohen says, "To give people a sense of what opportunities are out there and how they can make an impact, we want to do this right before the holiday season begins."  Viewers are encouraged to participate by asking the mayor questions after his initial presentation.

Some of the topics covered will be food/toy/clothes drives, ways to support individuals with autism and even topics such as disaster relief to those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.

The Town Hall will also be broadcast live on TAPinto East Brunswick's Facebook page.  

Just like all of prior Town Halls, it will be posted online afterwards for additional consumption.

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.
