Menus for the Mind with Will Reeve

This Giving Tuesday we wanted to highlight a lovely event from November at P.G. Chambers School – the Menus for the Mind Luncheon! 

At the Fall Luncheon, guests were able to see for themselves how all the children at P.G. Chambers School gain confidence, independence, and develop their own unique voices. A parent who spoke at the luncheon, Cindy Labar, said about her daughter Hannah: ” At times, Hannah even spoke like a typical 11 year old girl with some sass and attitude.” Cindy cited seeing enormous growth with Hannah, confident she is in the right school to help her accomplish all that she can!

Will Reeve (a former guest of #HipNJ) was a guest speaker and spoke about how the PGCS mission resonates with his mission at the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. He said, “Who you are, in your soul, your heart, and your mind can never be touched.”

The day was an incredible success, and #HipNJ is overjoyed that there are establishments such as PGCS out there benefitting young
people the way they are!

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”
