‘Joshua’s Day’ is June 25 in North Arlington; proceeds from fundraiser will benefit 6-year-old’s medical costs

The North Arlington Woman’s Club is proclaiming Wednesday, June 25 to be “Joshua’s Day.” In March of this year, 6-year-old North Arlington resident Joshua Piperato was involved in an accident that resulted in the amputation of part of his leg. The North Arlington Woman’s Club is planning a fundraiser to help with any uncovered medical bills or treatments to help cover the unexpected costs his family faces due to his injury.

Participating businesses in our area will have a Joshua’s Day flyer displayed in their window. Simply mention “Joshua’s Day” and a percentage of your bill will be donated to the fundraiser. Please come out and show your support.

Any local organization or individual who wishes to participate is invited to send checks made payable to the N.A.W.’s Club, PO Box 7274, North Arlington, NJ 07032. In the memo, please write “Joshua’s Day.”

For more information, please call Christine at 201-577-1088.
