The AFT through its Community Awareness Committee made custom valentines for the 300 veterans at the VA Hospital in Vineland. CAC member Esther Mummert hand delivered them while CAC Chair addressed 16 valentines being mailed to the local Gloucester and Camden County VFW posts. This was Valentines for Veterans!
Weather forecasters are saying it is going to be one cold winter… in response the AFT is hosting a hat and glove drive for children and teens.
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Community Awareness Committee is sponsoring a New Hat and Glove Drive to benefit The Center for Family Services (CFS) in Camden, NJ and the Angel of God Foundation in Pitman, NJ servicing a multi-county area. We are calling on the generosity of the entire university community to participate in this very worthy cause!!
