PATH employees recently presented a $5,480 check to the Hope House in Jersey City to assist with the organizationís work to provide emergency shelter for women and children.
The money was raised during PATHís 10th annual golf outing at the Oak Knoll Country Club in Parsippany.
PATH Director/General Manager Michael P. DePallo said, "I would like to thank the PATH employees who participated in this event to help support this very worthwhile cause. PATH has always worked hard to be an integral part of the communities we serve, and this contribution shows our commitment to Jersey City."
Hope House is an emergency shelter for woman and children operated by Catholic Community Services, the non-profit, non-sectarian social service organization of the Archdiocese of Newark. Hope House helps families become self-sufficient by giving them opportunities to make decisions and assume responsibility for improving their situations.
