WEST ORANGE, NJ — Mayor Robert Parisi revisited one of his favorite places at West Orange High School — woodshop — to collect 25 handmade wooden toys for township children.
Parisi shook hands with several of the students, who were happy to participate in the three-week project. Cars, helicopters, trains and more with working parts were prepared to give out to local children through the Mayor’s Sunshine Fund.
“I loved woodworking when I was at West Orange High School,” Parisi said in a press release. “I still love to work around my house.”
“It was great making the toys knowing they were for an important cause,” student Roberto Rivera said.
