Westfield Neighborhood Council Offers Karate for Kids of All Abilities and More

April 10, 2014 at 12:01 PM

WESTFIELD, NJ — The Westfield Neighborhood Council, a non-profit organization headquarted at 127 Cacciola Place, has been organizing more programs to serve and better the community, according to Program Coordinator Tamiko McDaniel.

The council’s recent activities include recreational trips, programs for children, fundraising events and health seminars and screenings for seniors.

“The Westfield Neighbohood Council is a private, non-profit community-based social service organization whose mission is to empower all members, children, youth and adults of the community through quality education and direct, hands-on outreach, as people strive with pride to reach their full human potential,” said Vice President Mary Withers, who has been actively involved in the program for many years.

On April 18, the council will launch “Self Defense, Karate and Safety Awareness” for kids that will run on Friday nights from April 18 to June 13.

Young people ages 5 to 21 with special needs can sign up for a class that runs from 5 p.m. until 5:40 p.m. Regular classes for children ages 5 to 16 will take place those evenings, as well.

To register your child, bring a $10 registration fee to the Neighborhood Council. Lessons cost $8 per student per class.

“Because I am a totally involved and concerned parent, I always want the best for my autistic son who, thankfully, is now seven years old,” said McDaniel. “I am filled with hope that our community will have a greater interest in promoting programs to benefit all special needs children. As a parent of a special needs child, I am looking forward to the day that I can easily take my son to a place where he will be able to participate with children his own age and social ability. Our goal is to always keep our boys and girls active and socially involved.”

“The Westfield Neighborhood Council is tax exempt and contributions are tax-deductible by federal and state law,” noted President Harold A. Cohen. “Visitors are always welcome. We always encourage folks to come and see what we have accomplished.”

For more information, call Withers at 908-616-9172.
