Preparations for our annual holiday gift giving drive benefiting the children and families of BIANJ has officially begun! During last year’s holiday season (2016), 66 children from 25 families were adopted, and just over $3,980 in gift cards were collected for the parents and teenagers. Let’s see what 2017 has in store for us!

Now accepting donations! If you would like to adopt a family, please contact Heather Boccassini at 732-745-0200. If you would like to participate in a smaller capacity, please consider donating a gift card from a large chain merchant such as WalMart, Target, Stop & Shop, or ShopRite.

Donations can be sent to:
Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey
ATTN: Adopt-A-Family Drive
825 Georges Rd, 2nd Floor
North Brunswick, NJ 08902


Here’s what some families said last year:

“I’d like to say thank you so very much, everybody’s generosity is absolutely heartwarming and amazing. Our girls are going to be delighted when they see the gifts that were given to them. We are truly awestruck by the kindness and generosity of the people involved with BIANJ.”

“There will never be enough words to thank you and everyone that sponsored me.”

“We would like to extend our appreciation and heartfelt blessing unto you for the gifts we received for Christmas. Thank you and have a safe and blessed New Year!”

Thank you to the 2017 supporters:
