Former NFL players Bart Oates and Lee Saltz (2nd and 3rd from left) presented a $15,000 check from the NFL Alumni NY/NJ Chapter to Give the Kids Hope Foundation, Inc. (http://www.givethekidshope.org), a 501C3 charitable organization that supports educational and recreational programs for underprivileged children in New Jersey. The donation was made on behalf of the NFL Alumni's charitable initiative, “Caring for Kids” that supports worthy nonprofits that help children; the funds were raised at the organization’s annual golf outing in July. Give the Kids Hope Foundation was founded by Judith Schumacher-Tilton and Stephen Tilton Jr. of the Tilton Automotive Group; the check was presented at Gearhart Chevrolet in Denville, one of the company’s two auto dealerships.
“This alliance with the NFL Alumni NY/NJ Chapter will help increase the public’s awareness of the great need that exists within our communities and help Give the Kids Hope Foundation bring our work to the next level,” said Schumacher-Tilton. “We are grateful to the players for their support of our mission and of the hundreds of kids who will ultimately benefit.” With her at the presentation were sons Ken Tilton (far left) and Stephen Tilton (right).
