Center For Great Expectations Readies ‘Baby Bottle Brigade’ Fundraiser

The Center for Great Expectations hopes to raise $7,500 over the next month through a fundraiser at Brunswick Square Mall on Route 18 in East Brunswick.

Called the “Baby Bottle Brigade” and running from April 13 through May 11, the fundraiser entails shoppers filling up baby bottles with the change they receive after shopping at the mall’s stores.

Shoppers can pick up the bottles at the mall manager’s office, and they can be dropped off when filled any time during the campaign at the manager’s office, at the Center for Great Expectations on Dellwood Lane, or at the Center’s table at the mall.

The Center is holding the fundraiser with support from the mall and Northfields Bank, according to a press release about the event.

“After touring The Center for Great Expectations, it was extremely motivating to see the dedicated staff working so hard to help the residents move in a positive direction both for themselves and for their children,” Ron Lichtenberger, the mall’s general manager, said in the release.

Marisa Guagliardo, Northfields Bank’s vice president, said in the release that the bank is “so proud to be part of this amazing community who continues to give back and support our local families.”

“CGE recognizes the importance of community partners like Brunswick Square Mall and Northfields Bank,” Peg Wright, President and CEO of The Center for Great Expectations, said in the release. “We are so grateful to Ron and Marisa for leading this fun initiative.”

Representatives from The Center for Great Expectations will be at the mall the following Saturdays: April 13, 27, May 4 and 11, noon to 4 p.m. to provide more information  on the center and the fundraiser.
