PATERSON, NJ - A campaign is underway to let Paterson first responders and other essential workers know that their efforts to defend the community against COVID-19 are appreciated.

On Tuesday, Mayor Andre Sayegh announced that lawn signs designed to express gratitude to the men and women, including members of the Paterson Fire Department and Paterson Police Department, are available and will be distributed to homes across the city for free.

“The signs state simply that those who have put themselves, and their health, on the line for us are our heroes,” Sayegh told TAPinto Paterson. “The signs not only serve as a small way of thanking them, but also to let them know that we are thinking about them as they maintain the fight on our behalf.”
