The Children’s Aid and Family Services is an important nonprofit that offers services aimed at safeguarding children, helping them flourish and supporting families located in northern New Jersey. For over 110 years, they have been involved in the community. While they try to meet the emotional needs of their residents, they don’t always have the resources to do so.
In 2010, the president of Home Inspirations Thomasville of New Jersey, Ed Massood, toured the Children’s Aid and Family Services group homes. Massood was touched by the hardworking staff, the supporters and the difference they were creating in the children’s lives. As a result, he inquired about how he could assist the agency in their efforts and a staff member gave him a wish list.
Not long after, new furniture arrived at a number of the homes—at no cost.
Now, Massood has pitched in to help again. Earlier this year, he gave $30,000 worth of furniture to three of the agency’s homes. Of these, one was a new property for mentally challenged adults, another a home for children in foster care and one a place for teen mothers and babies. Donated furniture included entertainment centers, dining room sets, rugs and artwork.
The Children’s Aid and Family Services organization always strives to create a welcoming environment in their homes. The provided furniture has helped to make a comfortable atmosphere, delighting both the staff and residents. Jerry Binney, President of the agency, was quoted in The Star-Ledger as saying, “We can’t thank Ed Massood and Thomasville Home Furnishings of New Jersey enough. Their gift is a wonderful demonstration of compassion and generosity to those we serve.”
Home Inspirations Thomasville was happy to help. For over 60 years, they have operated in the area and have been active in giving back to the community. To learn more about Children’s Aid and Family Services, call 201-261-2800 or go to cafsnj.org.
