Unico Chapter of Orange West Orange of UNICO NATIONAL has been serving the Communities of Orange and West Orange for over 50 years.
We are a service organization that has raised funds for scholarships for the children of our communities. We have contributed to many of the town's special projects such as creating a Garden for students with learning disabilities in Degnan Park, contributed funds for the local West Orange Girl Scouts to attend the 100th Anniversary Celebration of Girl's Scouting, and the recognition of our town's athletes at the annual Sport's Breakfast to name a few of our projects.
This past year we assisted and supported the town;s Italian teachers and helped gain support for the Italian language program in our middle school
The Jewel of what we do is seeing the smiles on our seniors' faces as they are honored at our yearlyScholarship dinner. Our organization promotes values of service; our motto is "Service above Self".
Please ask about our group and please join us by supporting our Events.
