5 November 2022 Family Readiness Group, Casino Night

The Family Readiness Group (FGR) supports the troops and families of members of the NJ National Guard – roughly 300 soldiers in NJ. The group is part of the 102nd Cavalry. FGR’s primary mission is to support the families, especially as their soldiers get deployed and are away from home for months. Recent deployments found our service personnel in Somalia and Jordan and, before that, were in far-off locations as embedded in the Gulf War. Empowers made a $5,500 donation to “give back” to those who give so much to enjoy our freedoms in the US.

6 September 2022 UELF Walk-A-Thon

University Elementary at La Fiesta (UELF) is a unique and exciting educational environment that practices what is known as Project Based Learning (PBL). UELF students are guided through a standard curriculum; however, project-based learning encourages students to investigate real-world topics in personally meaningful ways, and that helps prepare students for a lifetime of active learning. Inquiry-based instruction involves applying learned curriculum to analyze problems and ultimately design and create solutions. Empowers supported UELF’s most significant yearly fundraising event.
