9th Annual Coat Drive

New Jersey State Troopers distributed approximately 630 coats to students of the Elizabeth Public Schools, during their 9th Annual Coat Drive on January 15 and 17.

The donations, collections and distribution of coats to our student's were made possible through the tremendous assistance and support from: Elizabeth Public Schools team members, Notre Dame Central Club of New Jersey, Wakefern, PepsiCo, Adelante, Macy’s, Troopers United Foundation, Troop “D”-Newark Station, State Troopers Superior Officers Association (SOA), State Troopers NCO Association of New Jersey,  Elizabeth Fire Department, Elizabeth Board of Education, American Plumbing Supply of Elizabeth, along with community friends and families.

The annual community outreach event is reflective of the efforts Troopers make throughout the year: to have a significant and memorable impact on the communities while having a positive and memorable interaction with its youth.

Once again, the heartfelt generosity of the New Jersey State Troopers and their partners, will help ensure Elizabeth Public Schools students stay warm during this cold winter season.
