What We Do
Established in 2014, this foundation was inspired by the people of Paramus, who rallied together to help the families of TJ Franson and Thomas Caruso, after they were diagnosed with a severe illness.
The community’s financial and emotional support can continue with the next child and family in need.
This is a charitable foundation, which is taxexempt under IRS code 501(c)(3).
Following the horrific school bus accident that claimed two lives and left dozens injured – some with critical and significant injuries – a number of the retailers and restaurants at Westfield Garden State Plaza will make monetary donations and/or contribute 10% of sales registered on June 20th to the Paramus Children’s Health Foundation, with 100% of raised funds to benefit the Paramus East Brook Middle School families.
Retailers donating 10% of sales on June 20th include:
Visitors to Garden State Plaza can show their support by shopping at the participating retailers and restaurants on June 20th and also by visiting the Westfield Concierge during the months of June and July to make a donation or purchase Paramus Children’s Health Foundation bracelets ($5), magnets ($10), or unique note card sets made by members of the community ($20). In addition, all proceeds generated from Westfield Garden State Plaza’s summer program, Crayola Artists Passport Camp presented by Mad Science, will also be donated to the organization.
