ARFC's St. Clare's Home in Jersey City is turning 25. In those 25 years, operating 24 hours/day every single day of the year, this home has cared for hundreds of young children with serious congenital illnesses, complications from abuse and trauma, and rare conditions that require specialized treatments. These are the kids that enter the St. Clare's Homes. We are proud of the legacy being created through each successful therapy and every cry turned to laughter. Celebrate with us this holiday season on December 6th.
ARFC wants to distribute toys to over 650 kids this holiday season. Throughout the year our work is intensely focused on the medical and mental health of children, families, and individuals living with chronic illness. We raise awareness and support for those impacted by HIV/AIDS. We ensure that those who need it can receive supportive housing with dignity. These programs provide the type of services that will help families sustain and thrive.
Along with these valuable services, ARFC provides children with opportunities to enjoy being a kid ... receiving a new toy for Christmas or new clothes this winter. We ask for your help. Will you donate or collect gifts for our toy drive this December?
Send or drop-off new toys by Dec. 21 to:
77 Academy Street
Newark, NJ 07102
Attn: Annie Chen, (973) 643-0400
*If you have a collection of toys, we can arrange for a pick-up. Call or email us at email@example.com.
