Golf & Give Back

union-golf-club-263x300On May 22, Community Options, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing housing and employment support to people with intellectual and
developmental disabilities, will host its annual Spring Golf Classic at
Union League Golf Club at Torresdale in Philadelphia, PA.

All of the proceeds benefit Community Options and the people it supports, with a goal set at over $100,000.

“Planning the annual golf event is always a joy; not only because the
weather is getting nicer, but because we have a great opportunity to
further assist the people we support,” said Community Options
Enterprises Board of Directors Trustee, Phil Lian. “The fact that we are
returning to the site of our first-ever golf outing from over 20 years
ago makes it all the more special. It’s even more special because the
entire clubhouse and course was upgraded to the highest of standards by
the Union League of Philadelphia. We look forward to a great event.”

Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. with lunch served at 11 a.m. The
shotgun start will kick off the golf festivities at 12 p.m. At the
conclusion of the round, a dinner and award ceremony will be held around
5:30 p.m.

Baby, it’s cold outside

2016-10-18_13-10-41Jersey Cares Annual Coat Drive is underway.

Over the past 20 years, Jersey Cares has donated 500,000 new and gently-used winter coats to men, women, and children in need throughout New Jersey. They receive more than 50,000 requests for coats each year, and in 2016 Jersey Cares will once again collect and distribute winter coats through The 21st Annual Jersey Cares Coat Drive.

More than just an article of clothing, your coat can open opportunities for someone who needs one. You can enable a job-seeker to continue his search during the winter, allow a student to focus on her studies in a cold classroom, or help a senior go out for medication in a storm. What to you is a coat hanging in the back of your closet can be a life-changing support for someone in need.

Help keep your neighbors warm by starting your own collection drive today! Visit the website for more information on how you can be a part of the Jersey Cares Coat Drive.

The future is filled with the prospect of infinite possibilities. What will we do as humankind to steer things in the right direction? Will we continue to allow corruption, inequality and suffering to exist, especially when core of the motives are profit and hate?”
