NJ MET VP Joseph Federico announced that the company’s annual holiday toy drive will benefit Oasis, a Haven for Women and Children, in Paterson, NJ, for the third consecutive year. Toys and games have been collected since Thanksgiving and were delivered on December 22, 2014. Since 2001, Wayne, NJ resident Joseph Federico has led this drive at NJ MET Inc. which has collected many toys for distribution throughout the New Jersey area.
“We enjoy seeing the smiles on the faces of these children every year when Santa hands them the toys we’ve provided” said Joseph Federico from NJ MET’s headquarters in NJ.
“Colleagues, family members and friends have participated in this worthy cause by supporting our drive,” Federico said.
According to their website, (http://www.oasisnj.org/) Oasis is dedicated to feeding and clothing needy women and children and to offering them educational resources and skills to obtain meaningful employment and to break the cycle of poverty. Oasis offers these services in a safe, compassionate and nurturing environment. Oasis is committed to fostering healthy family relationships, and seeks to preserve the dignity of people and their cultures.
Oasis provides educational programming and critical support services, including food, clothing, and social services to women and children living in poverty. Programs focus on basic needs (food and clothing), adult education and youth development programs. Oasis adult education programs include basic literacy, GED, and ESL classes and vocational training (home health aide, computer skills, and culinary arts).
