Eight years ago, a fire on Jersey Avenue in New Brunswick left several families homeless. The AECDC acted as a coordinator for efforts to help them, including finding deposits for new homes. Recently the child of one of those families, now a college student, contacted us to say how much his family appreciated what we'd done. He is in commercial graphic design, and wanted to offer his services to us if we were in need of them. He also is doing a drive for children's clothing and durable medical equipment for the disabled. He said he never forgot how we helped, and wanted to help us help others in need.
