Wanted: North Jersey Volunteers To Help Raise Funds For Children With Disabilities


This holiday season, volunteers are needed at four Barnes and Noble bookstores in northern New Jersey that have offered their locations for Wrapping For Inclusion: Shoppers can have their purchases gift-wrapped by the volunteers in exchange for a donation to the National Inclusion Project. The mission of NIP:

“To bridge the gap that exists
between young people with disabilities
and the world around them.”

Every year, NIP gives children with physical and developmental disabilities the ability to be included in — and to experience — all that life has to offer by partnering with community recreational programs:

Cumberland Cape Atlantic YMCA – Vineland
NJY Camps – Fairfield
Hamilton Area YMCA – Hamilton
ARC of Atlantic County – Egg Harbor Township
Somerset Hills YMCA – Basking Ridge

To volunteer or get more information, email Diane Dudka (dianedwfi @ gmail.com), except for the Princeton location. If you don’t have few spare hours to help, drop by and donate if you’re in the neighborhood.
If you’re not in the neighborhood, online donations are accepted. You can also help NIP earn $10,000 for the training of their educators and advocates.
