Two Nonprofits Join Together to Grant Holiday Wish

Springpoint-Wishes

On December 7, Springpoint Living at Manalapan, the new Springpoint assisted living and memory care community, hosted a pre-launch party, themed: Wishes for Success, to introduce the new community and announce a donation to Make-A-Wish® New Jersey.

During the event, held at Battleground Country Club in Manalapan, with 90 guests in attendance, a gift from Springpoint Living at Manalapan was presented to Make-A-Wish New Jersey to help grant the wish of a child with a critical illness. Make-A-Wish New Jersey creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses and has created over 11,000 life-changing wishes for children throughout the Garden State since its inception in 1983.

“Over nearly four decades in New Jersey, we have seen firsthand the life-changing impact a wish can have on a child battling a critical illness,” shared Rose Farr, Assistant Vice President of Development for Make-A-Wish New Jersey. “Springpoint Living at Manalapan understands the positive power of inspiration, and we are proud to welcome them as a supporter of our mission, in our continued efforts toward our vision of reaching every eligible child and creating a life-changing wish experience for them.”

Springpoint Living at Manalapan offers older adults person-centered living that enriches each day, celebrates shared experiences, and fosters friendships. From therapeutic gardening and guided meditation to creative arts, social gatherings, evidence-based programs and more, residents are provided meaningful ways to live at their best, and at their own pace.

“Our collaborative relationship with Make-A-Wish® shares the common thread of creating joy to make a difference in the lives of those we serve,” said Chris Slavicek, Executive Director of Springpoint Living at Manalapan.  “As we open the doors to our brand new community, we look forward to future intergenerational synergies with Make-A-Wish® that bring children and mature adults a bright sense of enrichment and strength.”
