The New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers (NJASSE) collected over 50 toys for children of all ages at its annual Member Appreciation Meeting held at the Stage Coach Tavern in Scotch Plains.

“Participating in the toy drive is the ideal way for local ASSE members and families to give back to the community,” ASSE Past President Bob Sagendorf said today. “Our organization has been an integral part of this community’s service and growth for many years, as such, it comes as no surprise that we to continue to assist Toys for Tots in its annual campaign to raise awareness and donate toys for a worthy cause. The mission of the Marine Toys for Tots foundation since its inception in 1947 has been to ‘bring the joy of Christmas to America’s needy children’.  Click HERE for the full press release.
