Separating Immigrant Families Is Not Us.
United Way of Hunterdon County is deeply concerned about the separation of young immigrant children from their parents. It is hard to imagine a more vulnerable person than a child who may be fleeing violence and oppression in their home country. It is unconscionable to further victimize such a child by taking them from their parents. That is simply not who we are as a nation.
ExxonMobil’s Clinton Site employees participated in its seventh annual United Way Day of Action on June 22nd A Kick-off Breakfast was held on June 13th with presentations by key people in ExxonMobil Research & Engineering, United Way of Hunterdon County and its Partner Agencies.
United Way Day of Action (held globally on June 21st) is a reminder to Live United and to be active through volunteerism by personal interaction with the community. United Way Day of Action is also meant to be a “launch pad” for future volunteering.
This year more than 25 volunteers spent time at:
· YMCA of Hunterdon County, where employees participated in STEM activities with children;
· Meals on Wheels, where the team packaged and delivered meals to home-bound seniors and disabled clients;
