We are pleased to announce that Friends of JJ will be “Stirring Up Smiles” this Halloween throughout hospitals in New Jersey. Our mission is to bring the Halloween Spirit directly to pediatric patients during their hospital stay. Last year we hosted two Halloween parties at St. Peters University Hospital and Monmouth Medical Center. Friends of JJ along with Princesses and Superhero’s handed out costumes, toys and treats to over 100 patients and their families. These parties were both featured on News 12 New Jersey and multiple media outlets.
This year Friends of JJ’s mission is to be Stirring Up Smiles in at least 4 hospitals. We can only achieve this goal with the help of supporters like you.
We hope you will consider donating to our Stirring Up Smiles Halloween Program. Your donations will directly bring smiles to children that have to celebrate Halloween inside a hospital instead of at school or at home with their friends. These children trick or treat from room to room instead of house to house. A financial or in kind donation would significantly help us reach our goals. Donations and contributions are tax deductible under Section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
