Help our injured W. Orange teacher

On Monday night, Patricia Villarosa, a teacher in our school district, suffered serious injuries after being hit by a car on Pleasant Valley Way. She was on her way to a Board of Education meeting. She is a longtime West Orange resident and beloved by her many students, past and present, and by her colleagues at Washington Elementary School.

Going forward, she and her family will need all the support our community can give. Please consider donating anything you can to help them through what is sure to be a lengthy period of healing and recovery.

Our goal amount may be adjusted as her financial needs become more clear.
