The John R. Elliott HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers is partnering with teachers in the Egg Harbor Township and Pleasantville school districts to bring its life-saving message to their students in Spanish.
Through a grant from Exelon and Atlantic City Electric, hundreds of HERO brochures translated into Spanish are being provided to English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers in the districts to educate their Spanish-speaking students about the perils of drinking and driving.
The initiative also is helping English-speaking students learn a second language by translating the Spanish version of the HERO brochures.
Women from around South Jersey are lacing up their cleats in advance of the 10th anniversary season of New Jersey’s only all-female flag football league, the Jersey Shore Powderpuff League (JSPPL).
The season will kick off in April. Games are played on Saturdays in Somers Point.
But the JSPPL is about much more than just football, according to a press release.
Since its inception, the JSPPL, a 501c3 charitable organization, has encouraged women to stay active and healthy and has provided over $17,000 in scholarships to female students from Mainland High School.
Here you'll find everything you need to know about Somers Point: daily news coverage and comprehensive information on the island's events, businesses and services, attractions, real estate, beach and boardwalk and more.
