The nonprofit Care Plus Foundation, which supports the programs and services of Paramus-based Care Plus NJ Inc., has received generous donations through the “Push Up for CarePlus” Challenge.
Launched by an anonymous donor last month, the “Push Up for CarePlus” Challenge calls upon members of the local community to submit videos of themselves doing consecutive push-ups. For each push-up submitted, the anonymous donor behind the campaign has pledged to donate $1 to The CarePlus Foundation, up to $25,000.

United Way of Northern New Jersey has created a crisis recovery fund to address emerging needs related to the COVID-19 impact in its five-county region. The fund will address needs in Morris, Somerset, Sussex, Warren and Suburban Essex counties. The ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Recovery Fund was launched with a $250,000 donation from the New York Jets.
Contributions will be used to address the near-term and long-term recovery needs of those individuals and families uniquely vulnerable during this crisis — those who already struggled to afford the basics before COVID-19 hit. The fund will work to ensure the stability of the region’s social service infrastructure and close gaps in needed assistance for households in poverty and those who live paycheck to paycheck.
