WESTFIELD — The American Red Cross in Central New Jersey is pleased to announce the formation of the Raritan Valley Chapter. Formerly the Tri-County and Westfield Mountainside chapters, the Raritan Valley chapter will be responsible for providing Red Cross programs and services to 24 communities in Union, Somerset and Middlesex counties.
“We are thrilled to have created the Raritan Valley chapter,” said Executive Director Suzanne Lutz. “This allows us to streamline our programs and services to the community as well as lower overhead. Not only does that mean we are able to offer more Red Cross programs and services to the community but we are able to ensure donor dollars are used where they need it the most; disaster response, preparedness and prevention.”
In celebration the Raritan Valley chapter will be hosting a week long open house from June 27 to July 1. Events during this week include the Annual Meeting on June 27 and a Dine Out on June 30th. The Dine Out is an opportunity for residents in our area to show your support for the Red Cross by visiting local restaurants for a meal. Proceeds from the event will go towards crucial Red Cross programs and services like disaster relief. To find or enroll restaurants in the Dine Out, contact Corinna Krauskopf at 1-908-232-7090 x20 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Raritan Valley chapter is responsible for providing mission-centric programs and services to the following communities; in Union County: Clark, Cranford, Elizabeth, Fanwood, Garwood, Hillside, Kenilworth, Linden, Mountainside, Plainfield, Rahway, Roselle, Roselle Park, Scotch Plains, Union, Westfield and Winfield. In Middlesex County: Dunellen, Edison (NW), and South Plainfield and in Somerset County: Green Brook, North Plainfield, Warren, and Watchung.
