#GivingTuesday 2018

Give joy, spread love, and inspire hope, here in Greater Newark by joining La Casa’s #GivingTuesday™ campaign

From November 27th through December 31st, La Casa de Don Pedro held its #GivingTuesday campaign.

 La Casa de Don Pedro achieved its #GivingTuesday goals to…

  • Raise $20,000 to support our comprehensive programs
  • Provide 500 families with holiday meals
  • Fulfill the holiday toy wishes of the 900+ children and teenagers we educate and support. 

#GivingTuesday commenced the holiday season when millions come together to champion the causes they believe in. During a time when we feel more divided than ever, your act of generosity meant so much more when we gave together. Though our goal was ambitious, we knew that if we came together as a community we could brighten the holidays for those truly in need of some holiday cheer.

This holiday season, YOU were the reason why La Casa’s preschoolers, youth, and teens had gifts to open, and our families most in need enjoyed a memorable, nourishing holiday meal.


Held on Thursday, December 13, 6:30-9:30pm, The Rectangle Studio & Gallery graciously hosted a Toy Drive Reception to help us reach our #GivingTuesday Toy Drive goal.

Guests enjoyed food spreads, wine, beer from the local SOMA Brewing Company and goodies from local businesses while viewing sports photography by the renowned photographer, Rob Tringali. His photos capture some of the most famous moments in sports history such as the 1991 Super Bowl, Derek Jeter’s last game, and more.

The evening of art and giving is made possible by the following generous donors:
