All in the Family Gives Back for Back to School

A large donation of backpacks and school supplies was made to local schools before school started last week to get local children starting the year off right. Numerous people in the Monmouth County area went to Campi Dental Dental in Wall, The Atlantic Club in Manasquan and Campi & Morrison Orthodontics in Red Bank dropping off supplies for those children on the economically disadvantaged list in our area. “This is a great start to a school year but I would like to remind residents that these local families could use our help throughout the year,” said Cheryl Campi, co-founder of Campi Cares. “The schools asked that we collect gift cards to help them with groceries and especially to help support them around the Holiday season. I know so many people want to donate directly to their neighbors so I would like everyone to be aware that there’s always options to help out those near!”

Erin Campi, RDH is the fourth generation at Campi Dental, a family practice that was opened by her Great Grandfather in 1933 in Asbury Park, NJ. “Our family has been a part of giving back to the Jersey Shore community since 1933 when my Great Grandfather opened All in the Family in Asbury Park. Being able to support the community throughout the year through donations like school supplies, collecting for hurricane victims, going into the schools and doing educational forums, is part of his legacy.” Dr. John G. Campi was a co-founder and past president of the Asbury Park Boys Club, co-founder of the Asbury Park Medical Arts Building, past president of the Monmouth County Dental Society and numerous other organizations. “I count it a special privilege to serve our community in this role” said Erin. “I look forward to establishing lasting relationships with all our patients and hear stories of my great grandfather while supporting our community through drives like these.”

If you want to donate directly to the schools the Principal from Red Bank Primary School, Luigi Laugelli, said,”Something we are always looking for is gently used (it does not have to be brand new) clothing – specifically, khaki pants/shorts/skirts for children in Pre-K through Grade 3 and polo shirts in red, black or white. We have a dress code and these items are often sought out by families.We are grateful for any and all donations and would make sure that whatever we get finds the right home. If you are thinking basic school supplies, glue sticks, pencils, child size scissors and crayons are plenty for our ages.” Campi Dental in Wall NJ will also be collecting gift cards throughout the year and distributing them to the schools they are working with. Campi says, “Come by to drop off your donation, see our office and say hi to us!”
