About Give the Kids Hope Foundation, Inc.,
Give the Kids Hope Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that directly benefits underprivileged children in New Jersey. The foundation has set a goal in 2015 to renovate the campers’ lounge at Camp Hope in West Milford, NJ where over 2,700 underprivileged children from North Jersey attend at no cost every summer.

The foundation was started in 2009 by Stephen Tilton Jr. and Judith Schumacher-Tilton of Schumacher Chevrolet Auto Group, to provide less fortunate children the opportunity for recreational and educational activities that they might not otherwise have, including a chance to go to summer camp and sing by a campfire, take a nature walk or enjoy an educational trip to the zoo.

David Harris has become the face of Give the Kids Hope Foundation, inspiring many less fortunate youngsters with his enthusiastic participation and recalling that his own humble upbringing led him to become involved.
