Department for Persons with Disabilities

Be a part of a club that helps men and women with developmental disabilites realize that they can give back to the community and make a difference! This club meets once a month on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in Oak Ridge (Jefferson Township) NJ. The members decide on a cause they wish to support and devise a plan to get it done. This year they conducted a hugely succesful Mother's Day Gift Bag event which went to the young moms at Birth Haven in Newton, NJ, raised funds and collected food for the Jefferson Dog/Cat rescue organization and honored the Jefferson and Newton Police departments. It is an opportunity to help these men and women realize they are more than a charity themselves, but rather, have the right to give back and serve others as well.
