EDISON, NJ - Miss America 2014, Nina Davuluri, presented the Edison Police Benevolent Association Local 75 a plaque on behalf the North American Jat Charities, Inc. for its donation of $500.

Edison police officer and PBA Local 75 state delegate, Jeffrey Diakunczak received a plaque on behalf of the members of PBA Local 75.

“It was an honor for our PBA and police department to have her in our town,” Diakunczak said. “I gave her a police wallet with a PBA card in appreciation of her dedication to her great work ethic.”

The North American Jat Charities, Inc. was incorporated in 1994 as 501(c)(3) non-profit and tax exempt organization in New Jersey. Pioneered by the efforts of its founder, Ram S. Arya, the NAJC has served the community for over two decades in India, North America and elsewhere. The charitable instincts rooted at the foundation of the NAJC are manifested through contributions to the organization that enable promotion of positive social progress. 

"The funds that NAJ Charities, Inc. (NAJC) raises during the events like the one held at Edison Hotel on August 16, 2014 are utilized to provide scholarships to underprivileged girls to achieve their dreams through education,” said Ram Dhindhwal, NAJC Chairperson, Board of Trustees. “NAJC is a volunteer-run organization with no overhead expenses, and 100% of the funds raised are used for charitable causes."
