In what was truly a remarkable community event, the East Windsor Police Benevolent Association #191 and donors from across the area hosted a bowling and pizza party for 35 children identified through Rise. This was the second year for this event, and many members of the community played a part to make it a success.
The inspiration for the party started with David Berez, an 18-year veteran of the East Windsor Police Department. Mr. Berez explained that the PBA always had a family party for officers and their children every year, but he was inspired to find a way to extend this to members of the community with a focus on children and families who may need a little more assistance during the holiday season
Thank you Dick Cunningham for capturing the true essence of this special event that the East Windsor PBA 191 shared with our local kids. Again, a special thank you to East Windsor Bowl and all the other sponsors who made it possible. Kids Preferred, Ideal Cars USA.com, Party Fair-East Windsor, Planet Pizza and Wings, Triangle Copy, Trenton Thunder, Dairy Queen – East Windsor and Church and Dwight Employee Giving Fund.
As the saying goes, “Many hands make light work.” This event was born out of an idea, but it became a reality because of the efforts of many. When the community comes together to help other members of that community, some might say that is exactly what the holidays are all about.
