Local Business & Twp Road Dept Superintendent Raise Funds for Pascack Junior Police Academy
November is the month of giving back and brining families together. Township Road Department Superintendent Dan Kiely and Parkway Metal and Iron Owner Operator Jason Putzer met at a meeting and Parkway Iron and Metal being a family run business Mr. Putzer asked how they could help with the community of the Township of Washington. Dan asked Mr. Putzer if they could raise money for the Pascack Junior Police Academy since it benefitted children not only in the Township but throughout the Pascack Valley. Mr. Putzer being a father just like Dan thought it was a great idea and offered to leave a receptacle at The Township Municipal building to collect metal and iron scraps and any money raised he would donate and match to the Junior Police Academy. Parkway iron and metal raised a total of $1,000.00 dollars to be donated to the Junior Police Academy. Lt Rich Skinner the OIC of the Pascack Junior Police Academy expressed his gratitude on behalf of the children of Pascack Valley for the great idea and initiative put forth by Superintendent Kiely and Mr. Putzer of Parkway Iron and Metal.
