Hey let's help all Asbury Park residents who live way below the poverty level a chance to enjoy Mother Nature - the beach - during the day when life guards are on duty. There are so many children, teens & families who cannot afford the hefty fees to swim and play on the beach during the day. Many impoverished kids or families go to the beach in the evening when there are no life guards which is dangerous. This is when drownings tend to occur. Many Asbury Park citizens cannot afford the high beach entry fees. Swimming and playing on the beach would be a great way to deter bored, hot kids from getting into trouble & a great way to allow kids to have fun and meet other kids. Play is important for the emotional, social, cognitive and physical development of children. Give families, teens & children (with low income) a chance to enjoy the beach this summer. I am working with both the Boys & Girls Club in Asbury Park & Trinity Church to allow our entire community to have access to the beach. The funds donated will allow me to buy seasonal beach badges. I will provide a receipt for each donation & beach badge bought. The badges bought will be distributed to the Boys & Girls Club & Trinity Church who will give these beach badges to families who live below the poverty level and cannot afford to visit the beach.
( Seasonal Rates Adults: $70 Teens (13-17) and Seniors (62+ with valid ID): $20 Kids 12 and under, Active Military Personnel and their dependents, Disabled Veterans: Free )
I am excited that the amazing community of Asbury Park has already shown their generosity and their positivity towards this effort to allow all of our community to enjoy the beach. I am grateful for each and every person who donates to this cause. These beach badges will allow families to spend the day at the beach together and teens to have supervised, outdoor, healthy fun. Please comment if you would like an itemized receipt for beach badges that I buy. I will keep this Go Fund Me Page available for donations for the next three weeks. Thank you for your kindness, generosity and love!
