Room to Grow Hosts Fill-A-Truck Event to Support Low-Income Families
As spring approaches, Room to Grow is asking residents of New Jersey to kick-start their spring cleaning by upcycling their baby and toddler items to fill resource gaps for under-resourced communities in the New York/New Jersey area.
The nonprofit organization will be hosting its Fill-A-Truck event on Saturday, March 25, from 10 am to 12 pm at 4 Baer Court in Morristown, NJ, and is encouraging local residents to donate new or gently used baby and toddler items such as clothing, toys, books, and more.
By donating these items, local residents can help Room to Grow support over 800 families in the New York/New Jersey area who are raising babies born into low-income circumstances. The materials involved in supporting a young child's development can be prohibitively expensive, and when parents and caregivers are relieved of the stress associated with acquiring high-quality material items, families are better positioned to focus on what matters most to them.
Room to Grow is a nonprofit that offers critical support to families raising babies born into low-income circumstances. The organization provides parents with counseling and tips to track child development milestones, as well as essential baby items and connections to community resources, such as housing and medical referrals to help create a safe and stable environment. This holistic three-year program currently serves more than 800 families in the NY/NJ area, addressing the multitude of needs new families face by actively filling resource and support gaps in the communities they serve.
Jessica Spitzer, Room to Grow New York Leadership Council member, is hosting the event and can share her personal experience with the organization. Sandra Medeiros, Room to Grow Executive Director of the New York Region, will also be onsite to answer any questions about the organization.
For those unable to attend the event, Room to Grow is encouraging residents to purchase urgently needed items from the organization's wishlist. Please note that Room to Grow asks donors to review their items in advance to ensure donations meet the quality standards needed.
The Fill-A-Truck event is the perfect time for residents to jump-start their spring cleaning and donate baby and toddler items their child has outgrown. By upcycling these items, residents not only reduce waste but also help support Room to Grow and provide critical support to families raising babies born into low-income circumstances.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to give back to your community and help make a difference in the lives of local families.
