"Everyone needs a PICK-ME-UP once in a while, so we're here to bring a smile."
Riccio Pick-Me-Ups is a 501(3)(c) nonprofit based in Howell, New Jersey with a mission to provide F.R.E.E. (Financial, Recreational, Emotional, and Educational) support to individuals and families with complex health needs. Our passion is providing inspiration, aid, and joy for people of all ages and abilities through numerous fundraising events, gifts, and arts and wellness programs.
Our mission started 10 years ago with a simple phrase: "Everyone needs a pick-me-up once in a while, so we're here to bring a smile." Since its inception, RPMU has gone through many changes which reflect creator Amara Riccio's life, especially in the last few years. Now, more than ever, we are here to help make complicated lives a little simpler, give people a little more purpose, and to remind all beings they are worth it.
