(North Bergen, NJ—December 6, 2016) High Tech students in the Butterfly Effect Club, a club designed to spread awareness and fundraise for people with developmental disabilities, visited the Hudson View Care & Rehab Center to share Season’s Greetings, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech.
Under the supervision of club advisor Jamie Velazquez, students brought two large bins of holiday crafts to share with patients for several hours. Students worked one-on-one with the patients, customizing stockings, holiday cards, and ornaments.
“The trip was a very rewarding for both the students and the patients,” says Velazquez, who also teaches history at High Tech. “Our students were even asked to return as soon as possible.”
