PLAINFIELD, NJ - Families and Community Together (FACT), a community care management service agency for families and children in Union County, joined Plainfield School's donation drive for the victims of recent disasters.
Felicia Frazier, Community Resource Manager at FACT, and her colleague, Coretta Henessey, presented Plainfield High School Principal Dr. Phillip Williamson, students and staff, with donations early in November.
Frazier said, "Our staff was moved by the efforts the students were making and we just had to help."
The donations received by Plainfield schools will be sent to the families affected by the recent hurricanes and weather-related disasters in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Texas, Florida, The Virgin Island and Haiti.
Dr. Williamson thanked the community on behalf of the Plainfield Students and staff, and said, "we are grateful to our community, to all our families, and to our students for their response. This has been a great example of people helping people in need, no matter where they are."
The Plainfield Schools will conclude their donation drive on Nov. 30. Children at schools including Frederic W. Cook, Clinton Elementary, Plainfield High School, Special Education, Bilingual Education and Jefferson School are all pitching in.
