Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday with #HipNJ

Yesterday was an eventful Giving Tuesday filled with generous donations towards the opening of the Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas Regional Medical Center. We had the chance to go live with various folks who all share our passion and excitement for the opening of this center and the great work it is sure to do for patients to come! 

We are so close to our goal of $5,000 raised, help us reach our goal and make a positive difference for so many lives! You can Donate Here!

Check out these interviews all recorded live yesterday hosted by ABC7NY’s very own NJ Burkett and the VP of the Trinitas Health Foundation Nadine Brechner!

Let your generosity spill over from Tuesday and help us reach our fundraising goal, donate today – every little bit counts!

#GivingTuesday with the Connie Dwyer Breast Center

Tomorrow is  #GivingTuesday and the perfect opportunity to give after winding down from a holiday weekend (right before diving into, let’s be honest, a holiday month!) Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth is still collecting donations for their newest addition, The Connie Dwyer Breast Center, in order to best serve the people that come through their doors to fight breast cancer, no matter their finances.

Patients of the breast center love the care they receive from every member of the staff, saying “from the doctors, to the nurses, to the techs, everyone is just amazing.”

To those suffering from breast cancer, and even those with loved ones suffering, the right care and sensitivity is paramount when trying to overcome this illness. The opening of The Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas will bring genuine kindness and excellent medical care to more patients in need than ever before. 

As you make plans with your family to travel or stay in, perhaps making gingerbread houses or spending the day decorating your home for the holidays, spare a few minutes to donate this #GivingTuesday, because for so many people, your generosity means no less than the world.

“Give so everyone in our community has a chance to beat breast cancer”

Meet the NEW Connie Dwyer Breast Center

November 1st not only marked the beginning of the Holiday season (too soon?), but for many families affected by breast cancer, the real gift is knowing that November 1st also marked the beginning of an important fundraising campaign that will bring the Connie Dwyer Breast Center, a state-of-the-art breast health facility sponsored by the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation, to the Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth, NJ.

During each Tuesday in November, there will be pop-up party locations staged at Bloomingdale’s Short Hills. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in different activities for varying amounts of donation. With a minimum donation of $1, visitors will be gifted with Smarties® candy. For a donation of $5, attendees will receive goodies and/or gift cards from partnering brands and businesses, while supplies last. For $10 or more, participants will be entered-to-win a gift from Bloomingdale’s Short Hills.  Anyone who visits the pop-up location will be encouraged to partake in an interactive photo booth that will tie directly to the Trinitas social media awareness campaign running online.  

The campaign will conclude on the national day #GivingTuesday, November 28. On that day, there will be a live Facebook event hosted by New York Giants legend Ottis Anderson and other guests that will encourage viewers to donate funds through the Trinitas Health Foundation website portal.

Donations to the campaign will be collected all month long, and every bit counts – Donate today! And for more information about the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation, visit CDBF.org.
