The City of Paterson, known as the “Silk City” during the late 19th century, is the third largest in New Jersey’s Passaic County.

ASEZ volunteers have had an impact in Paterson through their positive can-do attitudes at environmental cleanups. Not only have they beautified their neighborhoods by removing graffiti and restoring community areas but also ASEZ’s notable Robert Clemente Park Cleanup mustered support from Mayor André Sayegh, District Manager Orlando Cruz of Paterson’s Special Improvement District and local residents.

More than 150 volunteers, including ASEZ university students from throughout New Jersey and other community groups, joined hands to create a safe and pleasant environment for the residents of Paterson. Altogether, they collected nearly 500 bags of trash!
