Clark Receives Kids’ Recreation Trust Fund Grant


Union County Freeholders Bruce Bergen (L) and Alexander Mirabella (R) present Clark Mayor Sal Bonaccorso (2nd L) and Recreation Director Ralph Bernardo with a check from the Kids’ Recreation Trust Fund grant program at the October 16 Freeholder Board meeting in Elizabeth.

In 2014, almost $1 million in matching grants from the Kids’ Recreation Trust Fund will be distributed to municipalities across Union County that are looking to upgrade or build playing fields, including hockey rinks, soccer fields, baseball fields, swimming pools, and other recreational facilities for children and families.

Freeholder Bergen is the chairman of the Union County Open Space, Historic Preservation and Recreation Trust Fund which provides the matching grants for the program.
