Charitable Grant Makes Hundreds of College Lectures Available at Carteret Library

Carteret, NJ – Mayor Dan Reiman recently announced that the Children’s Charity Trust Fund has donated over $5,000 worth of college lectures on DVD to the Carteret Library. The endowment is one of many the charitable organization has offered to expand educational resources in the Borough.

The Mayor’s Children’s Charity Trust Fund is a not-for-profit 501c3 charitable organization, established in 2003 to provide Carteret’s children with a monetary resource for education, athletics, and health. Since then, the Children’s Charity Trust Fund has raised over $150,000 towards scholarships, arts and culture, athletic programs, other charities, and a variety of programs and services that benefit local children. It is expected that the Trust Fund will have raised well over $200,000 for residents of all ages by 2008, owing to charitable donations and fundraisers.

Donated as a grant, the DVD collection represents thousands of hours worth of college lectures delivered by renowned professors and educators. The series has been produced by “The Teaching Company,” offering hundreds of lectures to suit a range of academic interests including history, economics, the arts, and the sciences.

These DVDs are now available for check-out at the free Carteret Public Library, and will be made available to educators and schools throughout Middlesex County.

“This product is innovative in making self education more accessible,” Mayor Reiman has stated. “Education shouldn’t just be about career skills, but enriching and empowering one’s self. This collection will bring high quality and intriguing lectures into the homes of our residents and neighbors, as well as our classrooms. In the tradition of the Children’s Charity Trust Fund, it is an appropriate donation that I’m sure will be a popular and valuable educational resource.”
