Princeton Human Services thanks donors for their contributions to the 25th Holiday Gift Drive. The drive was successful due to the overwhelming number of donors who contributed this year. The department distributed gifts to about 332 kids ages newborn to 12. In addition to donating gifts for the children, donors donated a gift card to each family to help during these difficult times.
The department would like to thank Stone Hill Church, Nassau Presbyterian Church., Princeton Police Department, Princeton Firefighters FMBA Local 72, and Lucy’s Kitchen for their support and contributions to the Holiday Gift Drive as well as Mayor Mark Freda, members of council, municipal employees, police officers, emergency services, and the many Princeton residents who made individual donations and sponsored children for the drive.
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 our donors and volunteers who help during gift distribution. Special thanks also to our volunteers and staff who 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.
Director of Human Services
