“Jimmy is a young man who is kind to all,” said Dr. Jonathan T. Moss, assistant principal at Readington Middle School. “Over the years he has been paired with a boy who needed someone to help him and make him feel welcome in school. Jimmy went beyond being a friend; through his kindness and compassion, he made the boy feel welcome and safe in school. Jimmy is an upstanding member of the school community, a friend to all and a fine young man.”
Through the organization’s collaboration with STOMP Out Bullying, the Jets have provided educator prevention toolkits to 1,000 schools in the tri-state area at no cost, conducted an anti-bullying educator’s symposium, created awareness through a robust PSA campaign and annually host an anti-bullying awareness day at MetLife Stadium on game day.
