The Township of Union, under the direction of Deputy Mayor Suzette Cavadas has organized a campaign to support National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The initiative involves several businesses in the Township who have agreed to coordinate a dine or shop to donate to benefit the Friends of the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) of Union County.
“As a parent there is nothing more important to me than supporting and protecting our children,” said Cavadas, “but as individuals elected to serve and represent our residents I feel like it’s our responsibility to make sure we are raising awareness and doing all we can.”
Donating business include Union’s United Taekwondo Academy and Blue Ribbon Bakery.

Tiff’s Burger and Alehouse - Tuesday, April 26th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
