CLIFTON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Joseph Federico, of NJ MET, Inc. in Clifton NJ, announced the company’s ninth year of relief efforts to aid orphans in Sri Lanka.
Over the past nine years, Wayne, NJ resident Joseph Federico has led a campaign at NJ MET, Inc., headquartered in Clifton, NJ, to send clothes, candy, toys, and toiletries to needy families and orphans housed in churches, temples and schools throughout Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka was devastated by a tsunami in 2004 and many of its citizens have been displaced by nearly 25 years of war. Federico made a connection to an orphanage in Sri Lanka through his local church and NJ MET, its staff and customers have been donating supplies ever since.
Mr. Federico explained that there are many charities that have been setup to benefit Sri Lankan children who have been orphaned or thrust into abject poverty by the tsunami in 2001 or by the conflict that ended in 2009. Among those are the Rainbow Centre, which was founded by a British woman who survived the tsunami when she was in Sri Lanka on vacation in 2001 and the SOS Children’s Villages in Sri Lanka, which is part of SOS Children’s Villages International.
The first shipment of clothing, candy, refreshments, and toiletries has already been collected and shipped out from NJ MET’s Clifton office, according to Joseph Federico, VP and Director. “Our efforts for the new year will continue with our fourth annual candy drive in the upcoming April Easter/Passover holiday season,” said Joseph Federico from NJ MET’s headquarters. “Anyone interested in participating in the drive can contact us at NJ MET’s office to make a donation.”
