Toy Distribution Brings Cheer to West Orange Children
WEST ORANGE, NJ - The West Orange Hispanic Foundation, West Orange teachers and administrators, and even the West Orange High School JRAFROTC helped to put smiles on the faces of hundreds of local children during a special toy giveaway at Washington Elementary School on Dec. 12.
The West Orange Hispanic Foundation, under the leadership of Rodolfo Rodriguez and West Orange teacher Amalia Morales, collected the toys. The West Orange Fire and Police Departments were also on hand to support the event, which provided a wide selection of choices for the excited children.
