The North Brunswick Municipal Alliance was awarded a grant by the Partnership For a Drug-Free New Jersey and PSE&G. The grant is a collection of 200 activity books, “Life Choices,” to educate third graders about the dangers of substance use and misuse, and provide an opportunity for teachers, students and parents to work together on life skills for a healthy lifestyle.
The grant was written for Parsons School, but any extra books will be handed out by Municipal Alliance members at their next community event.
