On September 9, 2022, we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of Allies in Caring, AIC, and our partnership with Pinelands Preservation Alliance, PPA, at the AIC Gala Fundraiser at the beautiful Bishop Farmstead Southampton, NJ. It was a joyful evening of giving and community connection to benefit health, wellness, and nature
We have been working together to expand our reach beyond what people typically consider an “environmental” concern or a “social service” issue. We believe enjoying natural places benefits everyone’s physical and mental health.
Your contribution will help AIC, and PPA offers a Pinelands Summer Camp for Hammonton teenagers and support programs at AIC’s flagship Con-Vivir Wellness Hub such as Computer Literacy and American Sign Language classes, the Youth Career Support Workshop, and our Affordable Counseling Services.
We had a Cocktail reception, hearty appetizers, and a large silent auction with items from the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Union, Lululemon, wine baskets, Aveda, North Face, Pinelands Adventures, Rancocas Creek Farm, and so much more.
Erik Estrada, Community Manager at the Community Foundation of South Jersey, Cassie Iacovelli, Executive Director at MainStreet Hammonton, and Carrie Pogue, Deaf, and Hard of Hearing Community Liaison at Allies in Caring will be honored as "Inclusion Pathfinders" for their work opening the way for diverse voices and leadership in our communities and creating inclusive communities in South Jersey.
