Day of Giving

Would you live without your favorite coffee for a week if you knew that it would help someone learn a new skill for employment? Would you skip your manicure one week to help an individual living with a disability or special needs have a safe place to live? What would you give to help those that need us the most?

That’s what we’re asking you this year on our first Easterseals Day of Giving. On April 22, 2019 we will celebrate a day focused on giving the gift of inclusion … of opportunity… of accessibility and of hope.

We’re asking you to “skip” something during that week or the week prior and make a gift to Easterseals New Jersey in the equivalent amount (or more!) of your chosen “skipped” treat or activity. Perhaps it’s a lunch out, a fancy coffee, a beauty treatment or so much more. One small “skip” from you can help to change someone’s life. Stay tuned for more information on our day of giving!

Play With Purpose 2019

Play With Pupose 2019

We are proud to present our 2nd year of Play with Purpose. This ½ day of fun recreational activities is for everyone regardless of age, ability or fitness level! PLAY is important to everyone’s wellbeing and goes beyond exercise and athletics. This year we will play around with some nerf items and also feature performances from the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. Bill Spadea of NJ 101.5 and Chasing News will serve as our emcee and we are working on some special guests and ambassadors!

Play with Purpose will be held at Sportika in Manalapan, NJ – 170,000+sq ft sports facility that boasts an Olympic regulation turf field, 7 high school regulation basketball courts, academic mentoring and so much more. Not to mention –it’s all indoors and we can enjoy PLAY rain or shine!

The goal here is to PLAY while we raise funds to advance the mission of Easterseals NJ. Fundraising can be done individually or in teams.

It’s easy to share our cause with friends, family and community members – remember – sharing the message is important for us to reach our goals!

Mark your calendars for May 11, 2019 and we can’t wait to tell you more soon about how to register and make a difference.
