It is the Artist Collective Troupe's mission to use our love of the arts to give back to the community and support local charities, causes, and other nonprofits. We hope to instill a sense of community service and a drive to pay-it-forward in all our members, and know that together, we can make a positive impact in our community and the world.
Some charities, organizations, and causes we have supported in the past are:
Rescue Ridge is a last-chance animal shelter that rescues and rehomes animals throughout the Jersey Shore.
ACT raised $400 for Rescue Ridge during our production of "Mary Poppins" in August 2022.
The Ashley Lauren Foundation supports children and families affected by childhood cancer throughout the state.
The Ashley Lauren Foundation was the beneficiary of ACT's 2021 holiday caroling. Carolers also performed for and delivered toys to Ashley Lauren kids.
