GiGi’s Playhouse in Hillsborough, the only location in New Jersey of the nationwide network of Down syndrome achievement centers, is a recipient of the annual TCC national donation campaign.
TCC, a subsidiary of Round Room LLC, which operates TCC and Wireless Zone stores across 43 states, based in Fishers, Ind., donated nearly $50,000 to child-centered nonprofit organizations across the nation to celebrate its annual Kids Rock initiative.
This year marks the third annual Kids Rock initiative from TCC, where participating stores selected a local nonprofit that benefits kids, such as children’s hospitals, boys and girls’ clubs and summer camps. Donations took place for 23 total nonprofits in late May.
“Uplifting our communities and younger generations is part of our business philosophy with the purpose to make the world a better place,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room, parent company of TCC. “Our Kids Rock program is very meaningful to the TCC family. We have a history of giving back to kids and making a positive impact on their lives, and we are so excited to accomplish this for the third year in succession through Kids Rock.”
GiGi’s Playhouse of Hillsborough, 450 Amwell Road, Suite H, received $2,000 from the national donation campaign. It opened its’ doors to the community on Jan. 11, 2015 and has since welcomed more than 300 families from throughout New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania.
