BLOCKFEST 2019 — Get Ready!

NJ Sharing NetworkThe Board of Directors of Newman Cares, Inc. is pleased to announce the charity for Blockfest 2019 is NJ SHARING NETWORK.

NJ Sharing Network is the non-profit organization responsible for the recovery and placement of donated organs and tissue for those in need of a life-saving transplant. Nearly 4,000 New Jersey residents are currently awaiting transplantation. They are also part of the national recovery system, which is in place for the 115,000 people on the national waiting list.

They operate 24/7/365 with a team of over 150 highly trained and dedicated members on staff. Their Governing and Foundation Boards are made up of a diverse group of individuals from both public and private sectors, across a variety of disciplines, and many of whom have been touched by donation including donor families and recipients. They bring great experience and insight to the important and life-saving work being done.
