This weekend, at the New Jersey Statewide Multicultural  HARRISON FEST COMMITTEE HEADQUARTERS, over 100 dedicated volunteers came together and helped to assemble and distribute 200 Thanksgiving Baskets to families in our community who are in need! Baskets were complete with a turkey, mashed potatoes, applesauce, yellow and white rice, sparkling wine, Sazon Goya, Goya mango juice, Goya spaghetti, Goya chorizos, Goya Maria cookies, Goya beans and a $25 gift card to Shop Rite or Seabras.

I would like to give special recognition to the Harrison Fire Dept. for their very generous donation and for also helping us deliver everything to the Holy Cross school. It is apparent that these men really enjoy giving to others.

There are no words that can express my gratitude to Isaias Sam of Goya Foods. I thank you for your support every year, helping us to bring happiness to hundreds of families. Thank you, again.

I would also like to thank all of the New Jersey Statewide Multicultural Celebration Sponsors whose Logo and Links to their websites appear at the bottom of this page.

I am also proud of the Harrison High School Environmental Club and Art Club students. They worked hard this whole weekend, and continue to want to do things for the community.

I would like to recognize and thank the following people/ groups:

The Harrison Fest Committee team members, Mayor James A. Fife, Father John Carlos De Sousa , Camacho FloatsSophia Collier of Kearny Bank.

Thank you also to my family for always being there, supporting me.

Thank you so much to all who came out and supported/ volunteered. The heart of a volunteer is never measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.

God bless you, and have a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!


Councilman Anselmo Millan,
