MORRIS COUNTY — Jessica Bartelloni, along with Kimmy Hughes spearhead an organization called Project Glow Gold. Project Glow Gold was established to give hope, love, and strength to children fighting cancer. Items collected are sorted into small baskets and care packages.
All packages are then given to children 18 years of age or younger who are undergoing chemotherapy treatments. It is their goal to give these children something to look forward to and to brighten their days. This is the second year running this organization with a goal of 5,000 items.
Last Year, 4,287 items were collected. Bartelloni and Hughes’ goal is to get as much as the community involved as possible. Any donation either monetary or items would be greatly appreciated.
