5 weeks a year. 5 local non-profits. 5% of one week’s Organic Juice Bar sales donated directly to great groups doing great things for our community.
To give back to the local community that supports our mission and values here at The Corner, 5 weeks per year we will donate 5% of one week’s Juice Bar sales to a local non-profit organization.
Volunteers from these local non-profits join our staff members to help bag groceries, do carry-outs, and speak with customers about their organization. These local non-profits spread the word to friends and neighbors about their 5% JUICE WEEK and invite them to support through their patronage.
JUICE FOR THE COMMUNITY week is a fantastic way to spread the word about your local non-profit and to fundraise in a friendly environment.
Have a local non-profit that you’d like to be a part of Juice for the Community? Let us know! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, send us a Facebook message, call, or stop in. 🙂
Our first JUICE WEEK was January 13 – 19, 2014, in support of Mary’s Place by the Sea in Ocean Grove, NJ.
Mary’s Place by the Sea provides an innovative approach to caring for women with cancer during and after treatment. They offer individual oncological massage, guided meditation, nutritional counseling, spa services, group workshops and overall support in a 6-bedroom lakefront bed and breakfast located in Ocean Grove. Since opening in May 2009 Mary’s Place by the Sea, a non-profit organization, has served over 2500 women free of charge throughout the tri-state area.
Our second Juice for the Community initiative took place from March 17 – 23, to benefit Wag On Inn Rescue in Oakhurst, NJ!
Wag On Inn is a volunteer-based 501(C)3 animal rescue organization dedicated to rehoming dogs and cats. They continually bring new animals to the rescue, as others are adopted to “forever homes.”
Our third Juice Week was held May 12-18 to benefit the SeaShore Celiac Support Association, a local nonprofit that provides programs and information, as well as raises awareness, for members of our community afflicted with Celiac disease. Each summer they hold a big gluten-free picnic, which we are continuously happy to be a part of!
Juice for the Community #4 (July 2014) supported Play it Forward, an Asbury Park-based scholarship program aimed at providing music education opportunities to local families and individuals with limited financial resources.
Juice for the Community #5 (September 2014) supported 180 Turning Lives Around, a Hazlet-based nonprofit organization dedicated to ending domestic violence in our Jersey Shore community. The Jersey Shore Wildcats hockey team is pictured above; they stopped by during the week to raise awareness for 180 as well as our Juice for the Community program!
And Juice for the Community #6 (December 2014) supported the Timothy Schenke Light of Hope Scholarship Fund, a Spring Lake Heights-based nonprofit organization dedicated to recognizing and rewarding exceptional kindness and empathy in Manasquan High School seniors.
Our seventh Juice for the Community (March 2015) supported Fearless Parent. The innovative online platform offers information, commentary, and original content on unconventional, evidence-based news about health, wellness, green living, and holistic parenting choices.
Our second Juice for the Community of 2015 supported Rescue Ridge, a local “last-chance” animal rescue in Howell, NJ. The rescue is staffed 100% through the efforts and donations of volunteers. Through the kindness of various boarding kennels and foster families, rescued animals are cared for until they find their “fur-ever” homes.
In July 2015, we supported The Ashley Lauren Foundation during our third Juice for the Community of the year! The non-profit organization’s mission is to provide hope and help to children in New Jersey with cancer through financial, material and emotional support.
In September, we supported Move for Hunger in Asbury Park. The non-profit picks up unwanted, non-perishable food items from those who are moving across the country and deliver it to their local food banks.
Our first Juice for the Community of 2016 supported Howling Woods Farm in Jackson, NJ. The local organization rescues and places domestic bred wolves, wolfdog hybrids and northern breeds in an environment appropriate for them. They also provide education and information to the general public about wolves and wolfdogs. We even got a visit from two of their wolfdogs, Samson and Takoda!
In May, we donated 5% of our organic juice and smoothie bar sales for one week to The Historic Village at Allaire in Farmingdale, NJ. The local non-profit educational and historic preservation organization works to preserve, while educating the general public, on the Howell Works Company, an early 19th Century iron producing community and on the life of James Peter Allaire, a prominent 19th Century marine engine manufacturer. They also demonstrate and preserve the everyday life of ordinary people in the 19th century.
In June, we supported Seashore Celiacs, Celiac Support Association (CSA) #96. The local group supports those who are affected by Celiac Disease (CD) and Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH) in the Jersey Shore area and is based out of Wall Township, NJ.
