MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ: You can help local businesses AND help families in need. Hope for Children Foundation  has been supporting families and organizations in Monmouth County, for 16 years. Of course they are once again in the trenches quietly helping those who need it most during our current crisis. .

Co-founder Marybeth Walz Pritzlaff comments, "There is so much need right now in our communities. While some are hoarding and eating more than ever in their homes, the opposite is happening overnight with so many families out of work, and hundreds unable to feed their families. In addition, we have small businesses abruptly losing their revenue. You can make a donation now to Hope for Children Foundation and help both the families and the businesses. With our donations we are purchasing gift cards from local restaurants and other essential businesses who need our support. Hope for Children is then identifying and providing families in need of nourishment and other basic essentials, with the gift cards.  We help small businesses like restaurants have revenue and at the same time feed families in need."   

Holmdel resident Joe Hernando, co-owner of Wahoos restaurant in Middletown commented, "My close college friend who lives in NY couldn’t make it down here to support Wahoos, so he offered to donate $500 in meals to a charity from Wahoos instead. I reached out to Hope for children Co-founder Eric Hinds, and the money donated was used to purchase gift certificates for those families identified through HFCF,  as families in need of nourishment. It's a win-win for everyone and it's so great to be a part of it. There are so many local families who need our help right now. The concept is great because one donation helps two causes."

Your one donation helps 2 ways:

Over the last 16 years HFCF has helped countless children and families in Monmouth County. In 2007, during Super Storm we were the first non- profit to reach out to our county and assist with brining countless non-profits together to help those in need. As we face this recent pandemic, we anticipate having similar issues. We also anticipate having an influx of families in our community that will request support. That is why we are asking you to HELP US, HELP THEM.

During this time of need, if you donate to we will use the funds to purchase gift cards from local businesses that will in turn help families in our community. 

If you would like to purchase gift cards from your favorite local businesses direct, you can mail them to 

HFCF PO Box 4325 Middletown NJ 07748. 

TOGETHER, we can get through this and make sure we help as many people as possible. Please consider making a donation at this time, whether it’s to or another local non-profit. We ALL need your support. 

Thank you in advance for helping us provide Hope for Children in our community. We could not do it without you!

We truly appreciate your support. Stay Safe. ❤
