Lakewood, New Jersey professional Avrahom Joseph enjoys spending his downtime outdoors hiking trails or boating. Dedicated to helping those around him, Avrahom Joseph regularly contributes to several charitable organizations, including the Special Children’s Center.
A nonprofit organization also located in Lakewood, the Special Children’s Center serves children and adults who have complex developmental disabilities. Established in 1996 by two teens, the organization has served more than 450 families with special needs. The organization provides developmentally disabled individuals with a chance to grow and progress while their families receive support from the local community.
During the year, the Special Children’s Center hosts events to help raise funds. On April 26, 2015, the organization sponsored A Taste of Something Special, where participants enjoyed a night out with friends, listened to a featured speaker, tasted the food industry’s newest products, and partook in a Chinese auction. Numerous food vendors offered kosher food brands, and the event raised money for the center to continue its services.
