Christmas in July 2013

The Honor Legion is continuing the tradition of Christmas in July at Hackensack Hospital Joseph Sanzari Children’s Unit.  The NJHL will visit the hospital children’s wing with Santa on July 25th, 2013.  Many organizations visit the hospital during the holiday season and we would like bring some summer cheer to the Children.  Many of the children helped by this program have life threatening illnesses.  Please help us to help brighten the children’s lives at the Hospital.  Toy Donations need to be new and unwrapped – unfortunately due to the risk of contaminating the children, used toys cannot be accepted.  Toy or monetary donations can mailed to:

New Jersey Police Honor Legion
PO Box 185
Wood-Ridge, NJ 07075

If your items need to be picked up please contact 201-852-5921 or email us at toys@njhl.com

As always thank you for your support.

James H. Kostoplis – President
Timothy Sullivan – 2nd Vice President

Project Blue Light

As a reminder, don’t forget project “BLUE LIGHT” this holiday season.  The idea is to display a blue light in one or more of your windows to honor those men and women in Law Enforcement who have given their lives in the performance of their duties and to honor those men and women who continue to work in Law Enforcement, putting their lives on the line every day.

This tradition was started back in 1989 by Mrs. Dolly Craig of Philadelphia, PA, who lost her son in law, Danny Gleason, a Philadelphia Police Officer killed in the line of duty in 1986.  In 1989 Mrs. Craig shared her idea with COPS (Concerns of Police Survivors) and told them that she was honoring her son in law and his wife (who had died in an auto accident earlier in 1989) by placing a blue light in her window.

Because of her idea, a tradition was born.

Please place a blue light in your window this holiday season.

Over 180 family, friends, and members of the Law Enforcement Community were in attendance during the January 28th meeting of “The Honor Legion of the Police Departments of the State of N.J.

The only raffle sponsored was a 50-50 in which the NJHL agreed beforehand to donate its share of the proceeds to the trust fund for P.O. Lisojo’s children established by the Hispanic Law Enforcement Society of Essex County. The winner, Mr. Ed. Brady from McInerney, Brady & Co.

NJHL Toy and Gift Program 2003

On December 10th, 2003, the “Honor Legion of the Police Departments of the State of N.J.” (NJHL) conducted its second annual Toy & Gift program with the goal of making some children happy during this Holiday season. This years’ program was made possible through the generosity of NJHL Honored Citizen’s Dr. Bruno Casatelli of Newton, Dr. Ken Conte of Garfield, Mike and Paul Blitzstein of Bergenfield, Gerardo Stancato of Palisades Park, and Dan Nosenchuk of Westwood.

The NJHL purchased toys & clothing destined for 60 children (infant to adolescent) in the care of Children’s Aid & Family Services (CAFS).  These children are housed in 2 Pre-Adoptive Treatment Homes and 3 Adolescent Group Homes located in Ridgewood, Bogota, Park Ridge, and Paramus, New Jersey. CAFS also maintains the Turrell Child Development Center with 200 children, ages 2 months to 5 years old. The NJHL also purchased gifts for the children at the day care, as well as toys for the center itself.

The NJHL dropped off the toys & clothing that were on a “wish list” for the children of the group homes at the CAFS building at 200 Robin Rd., Paramus, NJ. At this location is also where the Turrell Child Developmental Center is located.  In addition to the products purchased for the group homes and the “Center”, the NJHL Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman and the Elves (played by children from The Windsor School of Pompton Lakes) distributed to each of the children a Christmas stocking complete with crayons and coloring book.

CAFS is a nationally accredited non-profit organization established in 1899. CAFS is a leading provider of comprehensive therapeutic and crisis-intervention programs for families in Northern New Jersey.  While the NJHL program focused upon Children’s services, CAFS also offers Family and Community services. Further information about CAFS can be found on their website, www.cafsnj.org, or by calling 201/634-3664.

The NJHL was incorporated on December 27th, 1966 and is recognized as a non-profit charitable organization that is exempt from federal and state income tax under section 501(c) (3).  We are approximately 2,600 active and retired law enforcement officers of many Federal, State, County, and Local agencies throughout the State of New Jersey whom have performed an act of valor at imminent risk to their life. We are a fraternal, non-political organization that develops and encourages fraternal, charitable, social, and educational activities of its members, as well as supporting societal programs. We are also involved in sponsoring programs toward children with disabilities.

We provide support and assistance monetarily, morally, or in any other way possible, to a New Jersey Law Enforcement Officer’s family when he/she is killed in the line of duty. Should the event have qualified that Officer for membership, that Officer is then posthumously inducted as a member of the organization. Our Widows and Orphans provide a contribution to the fallen officer’s estate.
