ROSELLE— The Borough of Roselle has teamed up with local restaurant Central Park and the local Big Brother program to support Oklahoma tornado victims.
“We’ve all seen images of the devastation in Oklahoma following one of the worst tornado disasters the state has ever seen,” said Roselle Mayor Jamel C. Holley. “Now it’s time to act and help Americans in need.”
Holley announced Tuesday that his administration, Borough Council, the Borough’s Department of Recreation, local restaurant Central Park, and the Big Brother Program are working together to collect non-perishable goods for tornado victims.
“Most days we wake up and go about our business,” said Central Park owner Louis G. Andrianos. “Other days we have to open our hearts and help each other. Today’s that day.”
All non-perishable donations can be dropped off at Central Park, located at 2401 Wood Avenue in Roselle. The restaurant will accept drop-offs through June 30.
Walter Wimbush, president of Big Brother program in Roselle, labeled this call to action as “an immediate opportunity to help those who have an immediate need.”
“There’s just no time to wait. Our brothers and sisters in Oklahoma need our help now,” Wimbush said.
