UNION, NJ - Investors Foundation  has awarded $1,000 to the Township of Union Education Foundation.  A check was presented by Donna Steinmetz of Investors Bank.  The donation will be used to off-set the cost of a grant awarded to Marianne Deczynski and Mike Malanga, music teachers at Battle Hill Elementary School in the Township of Union, for materials for a music program that incorporates Orff instruments and drums. 

According to Marianne Deczynski, "Students are able to come together to work as a team to develop skills such as listening, cooperation, focus and analyzation combining 3 different musical parts into  a good performance." Susan Lipstein, President of the Township of Union Education Foundation,  stated that "The Foundation appreciates the generosity of the Investors Foundation.  With this donation, the Education Foundation can continue to support the teachers in our public schools.  When the community works together, we can achieve so much."
