Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados and Freeholder Vice Chairman Bette Jane Kowalski joined with Human Services Director Debbie-Ann Anderson and Nathalie Hernandez, Coordinator of the Office of Community Engagement and Diversity to thank Elizabeth residents Sima Farid and Alex Mendoza for their donation of 20 cots for the County’s Code Blue operations, which works to get the homeless to shelter during freezing weather.
The donations were coordinated through the County’s Office of Community Engagement and Diversity, which was announced by Chairman Granados during the recent County reorganization as part of his “Moving Union County Forward” initiatives for County government in 2018. The office promotes volunteerism and outreach, and works with other agencies to identify volunteer opportunities, coordinate events, and create a network of volunteer organizations to build relationships with the County’s different communities. For more information on the office, please email Ms. Hernandez at Nahernandez@ucnj.org
