The Julia Anne Kirsch Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to improving the lives of those with significant developmental disabilities and their families. The Foundation honors the memory of a very special girl, Julia Anne Kirsch, who had multiple disabilities and faced many medical challenges. It was through Julia that her parents, Teri and Cliff, became aware of the real challenges and barriers that the disabled and their families face every day of their lives. It was also through Julia that they learned of the special potential each individual holds and that they and their families can lead a full and happy life.
The fifth grade class at Coleman School in Glen Rock played a kickball game to raise money for the Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of their family and friends, the students raised $2,500 for the Foundation. The Foundation is very grateful for everyone’s generosity. . . .
The Foundation held a garage sale and bake sale fundraiser in May. It was a beautiful day with a large community turnout. The Foundation would like to thank the many people who donated items, baked goods and stopped by to visit. . . .
The Foundation was proud to participate with Lord & Taylor in SHOP SMART DO GOOD 2014 charity fundraising event. We thank everyone who supported this cause by purchasing tickets, and shopping at Lord and Taylor for this special one day event. . . .
The Foundation established a scholarship at the Glen Rock High School in 2012. Each June, the Foundation proudly awards a scholarship to a Glen Rock High School senior who demonstrates a strong desire to pursue college studies that will lead to a career helping the disabled. . . .
