Need a great reason to shop?

On October 3rd, the Lord & Taylor store at Willowbrook Mall (Wayne, NJ) is hosting its annual Charity Day. That means you can get exclusive access to 20% and 30% savings when you donate $5 to the AIDS Resource Foundation for Children.

That's an amazing opportunity to enjoy fashion, save money, and support your favorite charity!

We wanted to thank all of our supporters, and especially those who contributed during our recent match campaign, for being champions of our mission. You make it possible for ARFC to continue providing much-needed high-quality services to children and families. Our communities are stronger because of your attention and action.

We also extend our gratitude and celebration to the Victoria Foundation. Their match opportunity and long-time commitment to the work of the Academy Street Firehouse allows ARFC to push forward to make an impact in the community.

This summer, we will offer a teen apprenticeship experience to 12 Newark-area young adults, and a robust enrichment program to 35 school-aged children. Check back with us throughout the summer to learn more about what the youth in Newark are doing!
