Princeton Human Services thanks donors for their contributions to our 20th Holiday Gift Drive. Princeton Human Services had their most successful Holiday Gift Drive this year thanks to the overwhelming number of donors who contributed. This year, the department distributed gifts to approximately 290 kids between the ages of 0 and 12.
The department would like to thank the Princeton Police Department, the PBA Local 130, the Princeton Recreation Department, Stone Hill Church, Morven Museum, the JM Group, Lucy’s Kitchen & Market, CRWCares Campus Dining, REMEX Inc., Princeton Fit Body Bootcamp for their support and contributions to the Holiday Gift Drive as well as municipal employees, police officers and the many Princeton residents who made individual donations and sponsored children in our drive.
In celebration of the drive’s 20th year, a holiday party was hosted for Princeton children who participated in our drive, whose families many not have the means to celebrate the holidays. Thank you to the YWCA (especially the staff who helped set up and breakdown), Labyrinth Books, Stone Hill Church, and all of our volunteers who made this celebration possible.
This is truly a community effort as everyone works together to ensure that our children in need have gifts to open for the holidays. Human Services has been coordinating this drive for many years and it wouldn't be possible without the support of all of our donors and volunteers that help during gift distribution. Special thanks to our volunteers and staff that helped during gift delivery and distribution days.
We look forward to continuing the Holiday Gift Drive next year and providing this service to Princeton families. For more information on how to sign up or to make a donation for next year, please contact the Human Services Office at 609-688-2055 or e-mail MUrias@princetonnj.gov.
We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season!
