Toys for Tots Drive at our December 2017 Meeting
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 those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The NJSISC conducted its third annual Toys for Tots collection at our December 2017 meeting. The collected toys were donated to local children and this event is something we plan to continue each year.
Worker Memorial Day 2017
The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development presented a proclamation to the New Jersey State Industrial Safety Committee on behalf of Governor Christie in recognition of Worker Memorial Day, honoring those who have died or were injured on the job in New Jersey.“Each April 28th, I am humbled as we mark the ultimate sacrifices that thousands of men and women give in serving honorably on the job,” said Acting Commissioner, Aaron R. Fichtner, Ph.D., of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
The event, which also included a wreath-laying ceremony, took place at the Somerset County Administration Building. Workers Memorial Day has been observed annually on April 28 since 1989. It calls attention to the extent of workplace accidents and illnesses, and it promotes awareness of health and safety issues. The date April 28 was chosen because it is the anniversary of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
