Oak Ridge NJ, April 21, 2012 - MSG Varsity and Cablevision's Power to Learn recognized students at Jefferson High School for their fundraising efforts and participation in Charity Champions, a program developed by Power to Learn that promotes volunteerism and encourages area high schools to raise funds for a charity. At the event, School Relations Manager for Power to Learn Lisa-Ann Weisbrod spoke about the Charity Champions program and Student Advisor Melissa Kwiecinski discussed the students' fundraising efforts. The school was presented with $1,000 to be donated to the Department of Persons with Disabilities and $500 for the furtherance of the students' charitable activities.
Because the Jefferson students value their community and sense of family, they chose the Department of Persons with Disabilities as their charity for which to raise funds. The DPD is a local charity, located in Oak Ridge with strong ties to the community and is close to may students' hearts. The students wanted the opportunity to promote a stronger relationship between the youth of the community and the residents of the DPD.
