Operation Homefront is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive – not simply struggle to get by- in the communities they have worked so hard to protect. For over 15 years, Operation Homefront has provided programs that offer: RELIEF (through Critical Financial Assistance and transitional housing programs). RESILIENCY (through permanent housing and caregiver support services) and RECURRING FAMILY SUPPORT programs and services throughout the year that help military families overcome the short-term bumps in the road so they don’t become long-term chronic problems. http://www.operationhomefront.net
Saint Michael’s School exists to promote the spiritual, academic and personal formation of the whole child. The challenge of the Saint Michael Student is to live these teachings beyond our doors into the local and world communities. One way to do this is through volunteering and helping others. Saint Michael School will be donating a portion of the funds generated by this race to Operation Homefront. We invite you to join us in this community event by supporting the race with your donation.

Scrap metal from any municipality may be brought to either of the following drop-off centers:

  • Cranford:  Emergency Services/Traffic Enforcement, 151 Kenilworth Blvd.;
  • Rahway:  Service Yard in Rahway Park (near pool), St. Georges Avenue.

Acceptable items for recycling include aluminum scrap, aluminum cans, aluminum siding, bicycles, brass, copper, dishwashers, electric fans, fencing (chain/wire), freezers, gutters, irons, lawn furniture, metal cabinets, metal sheds, microwaves, pots & pans, railings, refrigerators, stoves, tire rims, toasters, washers & dryers, window frames (no glass), and wire hangers.

In the event of extreme bad weather, individual recycling events may be canceled.

For more information, upcoming dates or directions to the recycling locations, an information on all Union County recycling programs and services, visit the Bureau of Recycling and Planning at ucnj.org/recycle or call the Union County Recycling Hotline at 908-654-9889.
