FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - Building on the success of last year’s community-wide Baby Bottle Brigade, this year, three local chambers of commerce are stepping up to support the courageous women, children, men and families at The Center for Great Expectations with the first Inter-Chamber 2020 Golden Baby Bottle Challenge.

The Somerset County Business Partnership, Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce and East Brunswick Regional Chamber of Commerce have accepted this challenge for this initial virtual-event.

COVID-19 has created challenges for all in New Jersey and the women and children The Center serves every day are no exception. CGE was able to pivot immediately and continue serving this community without a break, turning to telehealth, utilizing technology to interface with clients and staff members meeting the challenge.

By continuing to provide the high quality treatment and support clients expect from CGE, as well as ensuring every family had what they needed in terms of food and basics, #Healingisnotcanceled and #Recoveryisnotcanceled became CGE's daily mantra.   Now more than ever, courageous individuals in recovery in our community need help. 

Generous donations from community members will support the mission of CGE, a nonprofit providing transformational substance use and mental health treatment for pregnant or parenting women and adolescent girls and their children, men and families impacted by trauma, abuse and neglect. CGE serves over 200 individuals daily

Business owners can make a donation to support the business groups and bring home the Golden Baby Bottle Award, which will be awarded to the Chamber with the highest level of participation and to the three businesses - one from each Chamber -  that raise the most money!.

“CGE recognizes the importance of community partners like the Chambers involved in the Challenge. We are so grateful for their leadership taking on this fun initiative. said Peg Wright, CGE president and CEO.
