12/2 Update: Thank you all so much for your generosity; we have reached our goal to be able to purchase the buggy! Any additional donations will also be directed to Katy's Place to purchase from their Amazon Wish List.

During this season of Nativity, we are grateful for the miracle of family. In this spirit, the ND Club of Central NJ and ND Women Connect would like to support Katy’s Place, the on-site childcare center at the Center for Great Expectations (CGE). Katy’s Place “makes it possible for each mother to work on her recovery, educational, and vocational goals while her child is cared for in a safe, nurturing environment. The support and community provided in Katy’s Place is instrumental in the healthy development of each of the children, many who have experienced trauma in their young lives.”

Katy’s Place has asked for our support in purchasing this ingenious 6 seat buggy for transporting multiple children at the same time.  It has been described as a “game-changer”! This buggy will make it safe and easy to take the children to the playground and for walks around the property. In the spirit of this season of mothers and children, please consider a small donation towards the buggy.  We will publish photos once it has arrived. 

There are 2 ways to donate:

  1. Register for this event and purchase "tickets" for $10 or $25 (you can purchase multiple tickets if you would like).
  2. Send to us via Venmo @NDCNJ
