The Friendship Train Foundation is pleased to announce that the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School (OLMC) was awarded a transportation grant from the Field Trip New Jersey Fund, a new fund and pilot program designed to support opportunities for students in under-served communities to experience field trips.

Live theater is a rare experience for the students in the OLMC School. Thanks to a generous grant provided by Field Trip New Jersey, sixty-three of our students will attend a new musical, Curious George: The Golden Meatball, at Monmouth University Pollak Theatre on May 18, 2016.  Following the performance, students will visit the Seven Presidents Park in Long Branch, NJ.
