On Friday, December 13, 2013 several members of the Middlesex County Retired Educators Association (MCREA) represented its 1,650 members at the Middlesex County Education Association's (MCEA) second annual "Night of Giving" at the Rosewood in Edison. Toys and other items were collected for children in need during the holiday season for "Hands of Hope," an Edison-based charity.
The toys and other altruistic items were donated through the generosity of the entire MCREA membership at its annual MCREA holiday luncheon and meeting.
Helping those in need
At each of its quarterly meetings MCREA collects food items for MC Foods to be donated to Middlesex County residents in need of food, as well as a variety of items for the military.
Through its "Aid to the Young" committee, chaired by Dolores Susik and Leah Kinnear, MCREA has an ongoing charitable donation for the young public school students in Middlesex County.
