Generous Donor Makes Dream Come True – Twice!

December 4th, 2017

On Sunday, November 26th Felicia Raines, a devout Jets fan and participant in The Arc of Essex County Day Programs, once again dressed up in her best Jets attire and attended her second ever Jets game at the Meadowlands thanks to the continued generosity of George Holland. 

Last year, Mr. Holland reached out to The Arc of Essex County with two tickets and a parking pass asking if we knew of someone in our services interested in attending the game.  Felicia, who was at her Day Program decked out in Jets gear hours earlier, and her mom, Jo-Ann Raines, excitedly accepted the tickets. Mr. Holland was so moved by the joy his donation brought to one of our consumers that he donated tickets to two games this year, and Felicia was more than willing to accept tickets to one.

"Felicia and I had a wonderful time, despite the fact that we were surrounded by Carolina Panthers fans!" said Ms. Raines. That didn't stop the mother-daughter duo from cheering on their beloved team.

Felicia, Jo-Ann, and The Arc of Essex County would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Mr. Holland for yet another generous donation.
