T4T, Fairfield New Jersey Chapter UNICO

T4T thank you Fairfield New Jersey Chapter UNICO Toys for Tots There is no greater reward than a child's smile, so Thank you! The chapter members purchased over 150 toys to donate to this worthy cause! Thanks to everyone, we surpassed our goal of number of toys collected!

The name UNICO was selected as best representing the nature and the character of this fledgling organization. The name is the Italian word for unique, one of a kind. The founders believed that UNICO would be the only one of its kind because it placed service to the community before and above fraternity. At the same time they hoped that the rest of society would come to know and understand the real contributions of Italian Americans to our way of life. Its sole purpose was to unite all Italian Americans and motivate them to become more civic minded. In order to accomplish this, members would have to understand that they would have to make sacrifices, not for personal gain, but for service to others. In the ensuing years UNICO became an acronym that stood for Unity, Neighborliness, Integrity, Charity, and Opportunity.
