Lunch Break’s annual Holiday Gift Program Drive is going on through Monday, Nov. 27. You can make this the most wonderful time of the year for many low-income families who are unable to afford presents for their children.
Last year’s Holiday Gift Program distributed gifts to more than 2,100 children. This year, Lunch Break members would like to help even more parents make their children’s wishes come true.
Individuals, businesses and corporations are encouraged to donate new toys for children newborn to 10 years old and gift cards for ages 11 to 17. Then on Saturday, Dec. 9, those donated toys and gift cards will be distributed to families during a holiday shopping day at Tower Hill First Presbyterian Church in Red Bank.
Holiday gift donations will be accepted at the Lunch Break warehouse, 968 Shrewsbury Ave. Unit 5 in Shrewsbury, from 10 am to 2 pm Monday through Friday and 10 am to noon Saturday. For more information, email Fatima Carranza at email@example.com.
“We are so blessed to have such a generous outpouring of kindness for our children each holiday season, thanks to our wonderful community members. I trust our families will once again be able to provide gifts for their children,” said Executive Director Gwendolyn Love.
