The Limousine Association of New Jersey (LANJ) donated $10,000 to two very worthy charities, namely Covenant House New Jersey and the Police Unity Tour, at the organization’s 2nd Annual LANJ Golf Outing which was held on September 17 at the Cherry Valley Country Club in Skillman, N.J.
Since 1989, Covenant House has been providing food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and an array of other important services to homeless, runaway and trafficked youth between the ages of 18-21. Covenant House is the nation’s largest privately funded agency serving homeless, runaway and at-risk youth. Its doors are open 24 hours a day for youth in need.
In addition to the Covenant House donation and for the second year in a row, LANJ also presented representatives of the Police Unity Tour with a check for $5,000, a portion of the 2nd Annual LANJ Golf Outing’s proceeds. The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour, which was founded by an officer in the Florham Park Police Department and now has grown into nine chapters with nearly 2,500 members nationwide, is to raise awareness of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. The organization’s secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum in Washington, D.C.
