First Lady Pat Christie Announces 41st New Jersey Hero

Posted:
NEW JERSEY - First Lady, Mary Pat Christie, announced today that Katelyn Darrow, founder of Angels of God Clothing Closet in Pitman, as her 41st New Jersey Hero.
Katelyn, along with her mother and sisters, was a victim of domestic violence. They escaped from their abuser in the middle of the night, with only the clothes on their backs.
Years later, tragedy struck again when a house fire displaced her family. As a result, Katelyn decided to start the 501(c)(3) organization in 2009 at the age of 12 in an effort to give back to those in need in her community—and those who helped her family through the hard times. The Pitman resident is being honored for her work in assisting domestic violence victims and families in need.
New Jersey Heroes is an initiative First Lady, Mary Pat Christie, began in 2010, to showcase the positive and unique ways people and organizations are impacting New Jersey and their communities.
