The Virtua 15U team had a very busy month off the ice in November.  This was the 3rd year participating in the Angel Tree for BIANCA’s Kids. Virtua was able to sponsor 25 kids (out of 250) for Christmas this year.   The Bianca’s Kids program helps children in need from both Gloucester and Camden County to experience a more enjoyable holiday.  Each child received clothes along with a “wish toy”, a gift certificate to the movies or their favorite store. 

              Established in 2010, Bianca's Kids is a 501(c)3 approved, volunteer-based nonprofit organization with branches in Southern, Northern and Central New Jersey.  The organization was established in memory of Bianca Yodice. It was Bianca's passion for children that inspired her family to create a foundation in her name which focuses on granting wishes to foster and needy children in NJ and around the U.S.

Whether a child is struggling due to mental, physical, emotional or financial issues - every child in need is considered one of Bianca's kids.   To date, Bianca's Kids has granted nearly 11,000 wishes to the most amazing children/families. 

In 2013, Bianca's Kids was named one of the fastest growing nonprofits in South Jersey and won the prestigious seal "2014 Top Ranked Nonprofit" by 

Unlike other organizations, Bianca's Kids' supporters get to see their donation dollars at work via our Facebook page and website.  Follow us on Facebook and visit the "Granted Wishes" tab on this site to enjoy the ride through our wish gratings.
