RANDOLPH, NJ- Countless have given to the cause of Covid-19_ children, students, educators, residents, organizations and more. As the coronavirus shut down our schools, teachers and support staff could not hold REA PRIDE events from mid-March through June 2020 leading to its funds being re-purposed to grant community assistance.
The Randolph Education Association teachers and support staff proudly contributed $14,056 in needs as follows: to Randolph Township and Rescue Squad 2,250 masks, to Randolph Food Pantry 864 grocery totes, to Brightview Randolph, Sunrise of Randolph and Merry Heart Nursing Homes 250 puzzle books, to Market Street Mission 150 computer rucksacks, to Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry produce and to the Randolph Regional Animal Shelter pet food, treats and supplies.
"Our focus is on humanity and responsibility for the community," stated Angela Cordova, Randolph Education Association PRIDE Chair. "It is heart-warming to hear and know that together in Randolph, Morris County, New Jersey, our country and the world that so many people heed the call to serve communities."
