Last Tuesday, October 9th, the Roselle Park Police Department (RPPD) hosted Diane Grossman of Mallory’s Army to speak about bullying to the 8th graders at the Roselle Park Middle School (RPMS).
Mrs. Grossman spoke to the students about her 12-year-old daughter Mallory from Rockaway, New Jersey, who took her own life on June 14, 2017, after being relentlessly bullied for nine months by a group of students.
After giving a presentation on speaking up against bullying, Mrs. Grossman was given a check for $1,000 which will go to a playground that is being constructed to honor Mallory’s memory.
The check was a collection of donations from Roselle Park PBA Local 27, the Knights of Columbus Msgr. Loreti Council #3240, the Roselle Park Democratic Committee, the Roselle Park Municipal Republican Committee, and Friends of Hokanson – Mayor Carl Hokanson’s re-election campaign fund.
