SO Police Offer Patches in Honor of Autism Awareness Month

By the SO Police Department and CPC

The South Orange PBA and SOA Local 12 are teaming up to present limited edition police patches in honor of Autism Awareness Month on sale now for $10/each. All proceeds are being donated to Nassan’s Place, which is located in our neighboring community of East Orange.

It is easy to order a patch, but do it soon, as quantities are limited. Simply go to this online form and fill out the information. Patches can be also be purchased at the three South Orange locations: SO Police Headquarters (201 W S Orange Ave.), Town Hall Deli (74 1st St.) and Kitchen a la Mode (9 W S Orange Ave.)

Nassan’s Place is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that is helping to make a difference in the lives of children and families affected by autism in and around under-served communities by providing educational and recreational programs, social outings, and resources.

The organization was founded 9 years ago by Nadine Wright-Arbubakkr, a mother of an autistic child, 16-year old Nassan, so parents wouldn’t have to struggle to find affordable programs and services as she did. Learn more at:
