*November 30, 2017 — For the third consecutive season, the Atlantic Health Jets Women’s Organization (AHJWO) will host military families for a holiday themed appreciation event. This year, Tuesday’s Children, the leading nonprofit organization providing long-term support to communities and people impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss, has identified military families of the fallen to attend the event at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center (AHJTC) on Saturday, December 2.

The day begins with a VIP viewing of Jets practice at the AHJTC. Following practice, children will prepare for the holiday by decorating gingerbread houses and cookies, and enjoying Jets Fest inflatables. While children are occupied with their activities, parents can relax with a mini spa-day including pampering services such as nails and massages or experience the Jets virtual reality programs.

Attendees will also be provided a holiday lunch and the opportunity to take photos with the Jets very own Santa Claus, center Wesley Johnson.

Through the services provided by Tuesday’s Children, the AHJWO is able to identify military families to recognize and give back to for their continual sacrifices. Tuesday’s Children offers a time-tested, long-term approach that enables families and communities to heal, recover and thrive.

In 2008, the Jets Women’s Organization and Atlantic Health partnered to form the Atlantic Health Jets Women’s Organization (AHJWO). Through this partnership the AHJWO can accomplish its mission of working together to build goodwill in the tri-state community through active volunteer participation. The AHJWO is an organization comprising the wives, fiancées and significant others of New York Jets players, coaches and football support employees along with Jets female staff. T

he Jets Community Relations Department oversees the organization with the assistance of Dana Glat wife of the Jets team president, Taneka Bowles, wife of the Jets head coach and Betty Maccagnan (Mrs. Coffee), wife of the Jets general manager. The AHJWO serves as a unique and positive outlet in the community on behalf of the New York Jets and seeks to team-up with select charities to assist in maximizing the impact of their events. The work of the AHJWO would not be possible without the partnership with Atlantic Health.
