CUMBERLAND COUNTY, NJ (October 19, 2015) – Members of Soul Tru, a motorcycle club based in South Jersey, recently donated dozens of toys, books, stuffed animals and games to the Pediatrics Department of Inspira Medical Center Vineland. After discussing ways they could give back to their community, the club’s president, Neftali DeJesus of Vineland, and its members chose to donate to Inspira’s young patients as their first activity.
“We are so grateful when local organizations think of our young patients,” said Dawn Goffredo, administrative director of Maternal Child Health for Inspira Health Network. “Soul Tru’s generosity will most definitely bring smiles to the faces of the children we care for. We thank them and everyone who supported their toy drive.”
“This was a very positive experience for all the club members and their families,” said club member Carmen DeJesus. “We are already talking about making a second donation to children in the hospital.”
