Thanks to generous donor support, this annual fundraiser helps make it possible for 2,000 students, teachers and school counselors to participate in “Upstander Experiences” at the Kidsbridge Tolerance Center in Ewing that focus on character education, social skills, bullying prevention techniques and more. Kidsbridge also provides virtual and mobile outreach programs that come directly to classrooms.
