For the second year, the AECDC team participated in TrackFriday.org. This is a walking event that began after Hurricane Sandy to give people the chance to raise money for their own non-profit organizations.
 
Led by AECDC Board members Laura Gordon and Dana Schrager, we finished in 6th place out of the 55 different fundraising groups who participated.  Not only did we raise over $1500, we also collected over 20 boxes of diapers!  $300 of these donations helps keep open our small but essential office; $1,200 translated into another 100 boxes of baby diapers (purchased wholesale).  Each box includes about 100 diapers ... that means our little ‘walking effort’ provided over 10,000 diapers to people who need them!
 
These diapers become part of a ‘care package’  we provide to low-income new parents who need diapers, wipes, formula and baby clothes.
 
Special thanks to the walkers and the donors who contributed to such a great effort.  Also, thank you to House of Cupcakes of East Brunswick, which provided cupcakes for all of the walkers and participants.
Mark your calendars for Friday November 24, 2017 for our next walk!  Become part of our new Thanksgiving tradition!
