UNION, NJ - Special Strides provides therapy, recreation and education in a farm setting for individuals with special needs, and the Union Police Department wants to help.

"The Township of Union Police Department and its members have always supported to autism community," read a social media post from the Union police, "but we have decided to do a little more."

Police have designed a patch combing the Union Police Department and autism puzzle pieces, which reflects the complexity of the autism spectrum.  The Department has partnered with Special Strides and all proceeds will be donated to them to assist them in providing scholarships for their patients to receive therapy.  

Patches may be purchased by emailing staffadmin@uniontownship.com.  Put name and mailing address in comments section.
