EVENT: OceanFirst Charity Challenge
Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey (CVCJ) has been challenged to raise funds for one of its most needed programs~ the Alzheimer's Respite Care Program (ARCP). ARCP provides respite to the family caregiver of a dementia patient. The program matches a specially trained volunteer with the family in need and once a week that volunteer visits with the patient so the family caregiver can get a break. This gives the caregiver a chance to do something FOR THEMSELVES~ shop, have lunch with friends or most importantly shower or sleep in peace.
Currently ARCP serves 50 families in Ocean County, but there is a never ending wait list. Funds raised from this challenge will enable CVCJ to recruit and train volunteers, pay for supplemental insurance and background checks. Ultimately, every dollar raised will help a family in need and end that wait list.
