Model United Nations Club set for 2018 NYC conferenceMembers of Bayonne High School’s Model United Nations Club gathered last week with administrators and community members to thank Vice President Ronnie Sevilla of Investors Bank for the company’s $2,500 donation to the program.

This is the second consecutive year the club will participate in the conference.Attracting more than 5,000 participants from 75 countries, the IMUNA’s four-day conference will challenge students to learn skills in collaboration and compromise as they engage in simulated activities designed to foster an understanding of the workings of the UN and of international diplomacy. Blood Drive on September 8St. Henry’s Church will host a blood drive on Friday, September 8 from 1 to 7 p.m. A single blood donation can potentially help more than one patient. Donors can give either whole blood or specific blood components only. The process of donating specific blood components – red cells, plasma or platelets – is called apheresis.The process of blood donation is safe. A sterile needle is used once for each donor and then discarded. Blood donation process is also simple. Every blood donor is given a mini-physical, checking the donor’s temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin to ensure it is safe for the donor to give blood. The actual blood donation typically takes less than 10-12 minutes.For more information, call St. Henry’s Church at (201) 436-0857, or email sthenryrc.org.Learn how to trap, neuter, and vaccinate outdoor catsThe City of Bayonne, in partnership with People for Animals and the Bayonne Health Department, will host a workshop through a program of Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) that will empower residents to help outdoor cats in the community.

The Safe Care Cam, launched in December, works by lending small surveillance cameras disguised as everyday objects to New Jersey residents for up to 30 days. Previously the cameras were only available to families who had home health aides or live-in caretakers. Now, it can be used in nursing homes and assisted living facilities across the state.One in 10 Americans 60 or older have experienced some sort of elder abuse, according to the National Council on Aging. Some incidents of abuse have been caught on video and uploaded online, which prompted community outrage and activism. The State of New Jersey requires certified health aides to be supervised by nurses and employed by health agencies, but the state Board of Nursing has disciplined a third more aides this year.In 2016, more than 306 home health aides had their licenses revoked, suspended, or were disciplined by the state. The New Jersey Department of Health makes available quality assessment reports of nursing homes on its website, and Medicare.gov offers a tool to compare nursing home facilities.Charity 5K for vets takes place September 10Hope for The Warriors, an organization providing care services to veterans who served after 9/11 and their families, is returning to Secaucus in September. The group will hold its seventh annual Run For The Warriors 5K at the Harmon Meadow Holiday Inn Sept. 10. Proceeds will benefit wounded service members, veterans, and their families.Hope’s origins are in the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune – located in North Carolina – in 2006. A badly wounded service member was returning from his overseas tour of duty and military families stationed at Lejeune took notice. They launched a race to raise funds for his benefit and for other wounded service members.The families then decided to launch the organization to continue helping injured vets. To date, Hope has served more than 13,000 service members, veterans, and military families, through programs such as clinical health and wellness, transition (helping them re-enter society after war time and find jobs), community engagement, workshops, and sports and recreation (which the annual runs fall under).The organization seeks to thank those who’ve given their service as much as possible. “Our motto is to restore a sense of self, family, and hope in these folks,” said the organization’s senior director Steve Bartomioli. “These folks volunteer to go overseas and put themselves in harm’s way to protect our way of life. We want to give back in a positive way.”The Harmon Meadow race will start at 8:45 a.m. at 300 Plaza Drive. Wounded service members and families of deceased members run for free. Discounts are also available for students, veterans, and those currently on-duty. To register for the race, visit runforthewarriors.org.City to host Coastal Cleanup day September 16After a big volunteer turnout at the city’s Earth Day Cleanup in June and many expressing interest in more cleanup events, the City of Bayonne is hosting another, this time called “Coastal Cleanup.” Residents interested in helping to remove the plastics and other waste that wash up along Bayonne’s western coast can participate from 10 a.m. to noon and meet at one of three locations.
