In the spirit of continually Giving Back, this column Showcases three meaningful organizations and charities that are doing amazing work and would appreciate your donations of time and/or money.
Please remember that generous donations are critical to our neighbors down the street, across the nation and around the world.
The Showcase will feature charities in every issue with the hopes that one will stand out and become special to you. From all of us at The Showcase Magazine we wish you a Happy Spring!
Home for Good Dog Rescue (HFGDR) is a 100% foster-based, non-profit 501(c)(3) dog rescue established in 2010 in Summit, New Jersey with offices in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. We rescue homeless dogs from high-kill shelters in the South, which are overflowing with unwanted dogs on the brink of being euthanized. We socialize, care for, and provide them life-saving medical care at our property in Aiken, SC, transport them to our rescue in New Jersey, nurture them in our network of foster families while they await adoption into loving homes – giving them a second chance at life. For more information go to www.homeforgooddogs.org.
Operation Jersey Cares is comprised of Veterans and other proud Americans. We are all dedicated volunteers who give freely of our time and talents to ensure that our “Combat Veterans” are getting the support they need for the sacrifices they are making!
Operation Jersey Cares sends packages to our men and women to let them know that ‘America’ is behind their efforts. We will continue to do this until they can be reunited with their families and loved ones!
Operation Jersey Cares is also dedicated to helping the wounded Marines and soldiers who have returned home to be with their families. Collections and donations of much needed items are brought to the Veterans Hospital, Lyons, NJ and to the Soldiers Home, Menlo Park, NJ. We also assist the families with the medical and financial needs that they may have.
Pajama Program is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2001 that believes that every child, no matter their circumstances, has the inherent right to a loving good night, complete with the comforting bedtime ritual of changing into new, clean pajamas and enjoying an enchanting story. Pajama Program offers at-risk children the unconditional, magical gifts of pajamas and books so that they can enjoy the greatest benefit of a loving bedtime and peaceful good night: a fulfilling good day. After all, good nights are good days.
