Our goal is simple, to assist in any way possible to ease the pain of the children and families who are battling pediatric cancer and to work tirelessly to help find a cure for this terrible disease. We need your help to make this goal a reality.

Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving
Jersey Mike’s “Month of Giving” campaign culminates with the “Day of Giving”. On Wednesday, March 28, Jersey Mike’s in Princeton will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales – every single dollar that comes in – to the Hugs for Brady Foundation.
We’re hoping it will be a busy day so we need volunteers!

Volunteer from Home Opportunities
We currently have volunteer from home opportunities for requesting sponsorships, conducting prospect research, asking clubs to fundraise for us and contacting businesses to partner with Hugs for Brady. You can call, email or mail letters to businesses, individuals and personal contacts to ask for their help.
We are also always in need of volunteers with day time availability to help make phone calls to assist with our Brady Buggy Wagon Program. We need volunteers who can contact hospitals nationwide to check if they would be open to receiving a Brady Buggy Wagon in order to be matched with donors. We also ask volunteers to call to check in with hospitals who have received a wagon to see how they like it, hear success stories, and more.
This Opportunity Is Great for You If:
- You are seeking a longer term volunteer opportunity.
- You are comfortable with computer software (e-mails, spreadsheets, GoogleDocs, etc.)
- You are comfortable making phone calls and have access to a phone.

The Hugs for Brady Foundation receives a generous donation of fresh flowers to be distributed to our supporters and to the public, to raise awareness that kids get cancer too.
We usually find out on Monday mornings if we will be receiving flowers and if we need extra help distributing them. If we receive enough flowers, we send out a text message to our flower volunteers to see who is available to come to South Brunswick to pick them up Monday night and then to distribute them on Monday evening or Tuesday to local businesses, schools, churches, hospitals, etc in the Middlesex County area. On occasion we all meet at the hospitals or in small towns to hand out the flowers to passersby to help raise awareness.
This opportunity is great for you if:
- You are looking for an occasional volunteer opportunity.
- You are available on Monday evening to pickup and Tuesdays to distribute.
- You are able to travel within Middlesex County.
