BENEFITING: Literacy New Jersey, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Literacy New Jersey, Inc.
I became a board member of Literacy NJ to honor two core values instilled from my childhood, education as a vehicle for upward mobility and the nobility of giving back. As the son of immigrants, I'm sympathetic to the struggles of integrating into a new culture and working to advance one's family. Working day to day with people who's first lanquage isn't English, gives one a unique perspective of how powerful organizations as Literacy NJ are in making a real difference in the lives of our neighbors. I encourage everyone to take a few minutes and consider making a donation to help someone take a step closer in exercising his or her full potential.
