This Daily Dose of Good comes from Carol Fries, the secretary of The Greater Atlantic Cancer Fund.

 

The G.A.C.F., based out of Absecon, is a 501c3 non profit that provides monetary grants to South Jersey neighbors, as they struggle with the negative effects of the disease: financially and physically.

The organization has donated more than $1 million in the last 30 years and have had many successful events in the past such as Coach Bag Bingo, and Bass Pro of Atlantic City's Kayak giveaway. They hope to continue helping others in need by doing a little extra dose of good and spreading the word.

In which case, they have an events calendar jam-packed with ways you can get involved, such as a Friends-Helping-Friends Shopping Day. You can buy a $5 "shopping pass" from your favorite non-profit that gets you 25% off your purchase at any Boscov's. That event takes place Tuesday between 9AM-11PM. All proceeds will go to helping those battling cancer.
