SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Leave an extra light on or place a candle in the window to light the way for all our essential workers this Sunday, April 5.

"This is a special project that we are presenting in appreciation of essential workers," said Scotch Plains Deputy Mayor Josh Losardo.

"Let's unite in lighting up the town to show our support and gratitude for medical teams, first responders, mail and delivery workers, pharmacy, grocery and restaurant workers, teachers and childcare workers, government employees, gas station attendants and more who serve each and every day during the COVID-19 outbreak," said Scotch Plains Mayor Al Smith.
