Local youths join Project Glow Gold to Support Children with Cancer

Jessica Bartelloni,

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.
