During the 2017 holiday season, we were able to assist 30 families thanks to our generous donors. This includes 73 children and 40 adults, with approximately $10,000 donated in gifts and approximately $4,000 donated in gift cards.

To get involved with the 2018 Adopt-A-Family drive, contact Debra Crossman, Director of Support Services at 732-745-0200 or dcrossman@bianj.org.

Here’s what some adopted families had to say:

“Thank you to my TBI family for making my Christmas spectacular. I love all my gifts and am also very grateful for all the appliances you gave to my mommy. The day we lost our home was sad. I am also grateful for my chrome book that I lost. This will help keep my great grades. Happy New Year!”

“He was so excited with everything he received. We cannot thank you enough for generosity that was shown to our family.”

“The gifts are amazing and so thoughtful. Thank you so much. Each year I am floored by the generosity in people’s hearts. My girls are thrilled.”

“Thank you so much. You don’t even realize how this is helping our family, especially this 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:
