NJ Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers Raises Over $5,000 for Toys for Tots
Bridgewater, NJ (January 8, 2013) – The New Jersey Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers raised $5,535 in its second annual fundraiser for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, improving on its inaugural effort which raised $4,087. A check was presented to Toys for Tots at the last AAML meeting of the year at Steakhouse 85 in New Brunswick.
“The Chapter is extremely pleased that we were able to improve on last year’s donation to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. It would not have been possible without the suport of our board, members, and friends of the chapter, who generously donated their time and resources,” said John P. Paone, Jr., President of the Chapter and a founder and senior partner of Paone, Zaleski & Brown.
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year and distribute them as Christmas gifts to needy children in each community in which the campaign is conducted.
