Children’s Auxiliary

The VNA of Central Jersey Children’s Auxiliary is a group of dedicated women who volunteer their time and talents through community outreach and special events to help raise funds and awareness for VNA’s Children and Family Health Institute programs that serve for vulnerable and at-risk children and families.  

The Children’s Auxiliary meets regularly to plan two wildly popular signature events held in the two river area of Monmouth County, New Jersey. Their annual Family Fall Fest, held in mid-October, invites families and children to a festive day outdoors filled with autumn-inspired activities, entertainment, refreshments and more. The Power of the Purse is the Auxiliary’s spring biennial ladies’ night out and handbag auction, featuring dozens of beautiful designer handbags. 

In addition to their special events, the Children’s Auxiliary works to find creative ways to support VNA including their Gear to Grow program. This program accepts donations of gently used baby gear to moms and families in need who receive care through VNA’s Children & Family Health Institute. Members of the Children’s Auxiliary work directly with VNA clinical staff to match VNA patient families with needed supplies and equipment in this mom-to-mom inspired program.
