The holiday season is a time of year when family and friends come together to make merry, to have fun and to enjoy the blessings bestowed upon them. It is a very happy and special time of the year for most. Yet it is also a time of sadness for many parents who, along with their children, might not able to enjoy some of the simple joys of the season. This extremely harsh reality compels us to do something.
It is with this in mind and in the spirit of the holiday season that I will be hosting a party for about 50 kids and their parents at the Elm West Residents Association, from 3 – 6 pm on Saturday, December 22, 2012. Amelia and I, along with some of our friends, will have toys, gift cards and refreshments for the children and their parents.
We are collecting donations of toys and gift cards from all who would like to help us provide a wonderful holiday for those who are less fortunate. If you would like to participate and show your generosity in this season of giving, you may drop off your donations at our home at 535 West 8th Street. Please call (908) 577-0630 for further information.
Again, the party is scheduled for Saturday, December 22, 2012 from 3 – 6 pm. We look forward to a fun evening with the parents and their children. Join us!
