A number of Princeton-area companies are lending a hand to the Children’s Home Society. Klatzkin & Company has prepared dozens of baskets of baby items for the non-profit’s Latino outreach and parenting program, CUNA. Meanwhile, CUNA participants have been given an extra incentive to make sure that their children receive all of their vaccinations. Bloomberg employees have donated 75 pinatas as gifts for every mother who brings in a certificate showing that her child is all caught up on his or her vaccinations. Also helping out is the Trenton Thunder, which has donated 700 tickets to CHS families.
Greg Olsen, space traveler and co-founder of Sensors Unlimited, which he sold to Goodrich last year, has donated $5 million to Fairleigh Dickinson University, his alma mater. It was the largest gift in the university’s history.
