In celebration of Easter, Mayor Armstead, the Mayor’s Youth Commission, and the Linden Department of Parks and Recreation hosted an Easter Goody Bag Grab & Go on March 30th and March 31st. Previously, they’ve hosted Easter Egg Hunts for the youth; however, due to COVID-19, the event could not be held.
Wanting to spread cheer and not leave the children at bay, they improvised and hosted the Goody Bag Grab & Go. There were three eggs in the goody bags that had raffle tickets in them.
Our three lucky raffle winners were Tyler Caldwell, Coraliy Betances, and Eva Ribeiro. They each won $25 Visa gift cards donated by Phillips 66.
Congratulations to our winners!
The Class of 2021 has been faced with many challenges this School year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Classes have been held virtually, students have not been able to participate fully with extracurricular activities and have not been able to socialize with their friends.
This year we are hoping that we will be able to host another Post Graduation Celebration that is “Uplifting and Inspirational” for our graduates. Something that they will look back on and remember their senior year in a positive way.
Please consider donating to the Youth Commission and help us plan a “special celebration” for the Class of 2021. Click here to make a donation online, or mail your donation to Linden Mayor’s Youth Commission, 301 N. Wood Ave, Linden, NJ 07036
We thank you for your anticipated support in helping us provide a safe environment in which our seniors can celebrate Graduation together…. safe and sober.
Sandy Jackson, President of the Mayor’s Youth Commission
