This is in addition to the North Bergen Library making a significant donation of books and desktop computers to support the relief efforts in Ukraine and neighboring countries.

“The horrific war in Ukraine has escalated quickly and is a humanitarian crisis for millions of innocent people,” state Senator (D-32)/North Bergen Mayor Nick Sacco said in a statement.

“While I have had a heavy heart throughout this situation, it makes me extremely proud that the Township of North Bergen is able to do its small part to help those in need around the world.”

The North Bergen Library, in an effort to provide some measure of relief, is donating forty desktop computers as well as fifteen boxes of children’s books, while vital supplies are being generously provided through the North Bergen Community Assistance Relief Events & Support (NB C.A.R.E.S.) program.

These include diapers, children’s clothing, toys and stuffed animals, school supplies, as well as other basic necessities.

NB C.A.R.E.S Administrator Aimee Focaraccio is coordinating this collaborative effort with Secaucus.

“I want to thank Mayor Sacco as well as Mayor Gonnelli for allowing us to contribute to this important cause. We are grateful that we are able to provide some measure of support and relief to those in need,” she said.

The NB C.A.R.E.S. program was launched in 2013 to help the victims of fires or other disasters. They are involved in numerous community events and activities throughout the year, providing resources for residents of all ages.
