SGA Presents Phone Cards to National Guard
A student government drive to collect and purchase phone cards for National Guard troops overseas resulted in a donation of 28 cards in a variety of denominations that added up to several hundred dollars. Brigadier General Maria Falca-Dodson greeted a contingent from MCCC on April 26 as they delivered the donation to the Armory in Lawrenceville. The cards will go to local guard members who have been deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Falca-Dodson said more than 6,000 guards were deployed to the Middle East from the Armory in the past four years. She said in addition to overseas deployments, New Jersey also sent troops to the gulf coast to help with hurricane relief efforts. They were part of the 58,000 members of the National Guard from throughout the country who helped during the hurricane aftermath. Photo
