SOMERVILLE – At the Oct. 24 freeholders’ meeting, Sheriff Frank J. Provenzano was presented two $3,000 checks from Craig Calderaro of Bridgewater on behalf of the Anthony Calderaro Memorial Fund. 

The Fund was created in September 2016 in memory of Mr. Calderaro’s son Anthony who succumbed to heroin addiction. The primary goal of the fund is to develop awareness in the community and address the severity of opioid and heroin addiction.

Sheriff Provenzano was much appreciative of the donation for his agency.  After expressing his condolences to the family he thanked them for the generous donation. “Rest assured the money will be put to good use educating the public, especially our youth about opioid addiction,” he said.

The funds are to be allocated for education and prevention programs for both the Law Enforcement Division and the Corrections Division of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office to combat opioid and heroin addiction.
