We teamed up with Walmart in Lanoka Harbor, NJ to buy bikes for children with Autism. We raised a little more money than expected, and wanted to do something a little more than write a check, so we did this. Please take a moment (or four) and watch!
We recently just finished up our 2nd Annual Toy Drive!! We donated over 2,000 toys to local organizations around Ocean County. The Ocean County Sheriffs Dept was the biggest recipient of them getting an astounding 1,668 toys!!! Also receiving toys were St Joe's Church and Abundant Grace Church in Toms, River, Children's Specialized Hospital in Toms River, and the Beachwood Fire Dept. Also helping collect toys for us were:
Walgreens with 24 boxes in Ocean and Monmouth County,
Daruma Tattoo Company in Toms River
Latti's Barbershop in Bayville
Oh What a Bagel in Bayville
We finished up our food drive and it was a huge success. We donated about 4 tons of food to St Joe's church in Toms River, Abundant Grace Church in Toms River, and The People Pantry in Toms River. We are grateful for the support from everyone as we continue to fight to make our community better.
Here's just a small sample of what we have done in the community.
We want to make a huge shout out to Daruma Tattoo Company, Tailored Barber, Dangerously Dapper Clothing Brand, and DJ Ryan Subers for coming out and helping Cut Out Cancer. Please take a moment to check out these guys, class acts all around. We raised $5,000 collectively and cannot wait to make this huge impact in out community. Thank you all for a great turnout and more than successful turnout.

Toy Donation Drive
We raised and collected $15,000 in toys for various places in Ocean County. Churches, hospitals, and the OC Sheriff's Department were the recipients of the proceeds.
About 3 tons of food were bought and collected during October and November to help provide for those in need during the holiday season.
Throughout July and August, we helped collect supplies and funds to purchase supplies for families in need during the back to school time.
