Project Christmas NJ (www.ProjectChristmasNJ) is in our EIGHTH YEAR serving families across South Jersey in need at the holidays. With so many people vaccinated and traveling again - we're all looking forward to helping so many families have a happy, healthy Christmas 2022!
Every year, we take applications - from police officers, social workers, teachers, family members- people who know kids who genuinely NEED a happy holiday. And every year, we do everything possible to bring it to them- we provide families with coats & winter gear, clothing, baby supplies, food- and of course, Christmas decor, gift wrap & supplies as well as all the gifts for these kids.... Allowing the parents to focus on keeping a roof over their heads without allowing the kids' holiday to suffer.
Starting with just one family back in 2015- our community has stepped up EVERY YEAR, getting bigger and better- providing more, and for more families. We're so thrilled to be able to provide a safe and happy holiday for so many, and we can only do it because of you!
While our family provides all operational costs for the Project (printing and delivering flyers to area neighborhoods & events, picking up and delivering donations to families, etc)- we DO need help with purchasing gifts and supplies (cleaning products, paper products, etc) for the families we assist. Every year, as the holiday approaches, we dip into the donations to pick up whatever remaining items haven't been covered by physical donations.
We hope that you'll consider helping Project Christmas - we're a small, family run, holiday charity- but we have six years of transparent operation and our goal has never changed; give Christmas to kids who wouldn't otherwise have one.
Each season, there are a lot of requests from kids for toys that are HARD TO GET. Every season, we have to work extra hard to get those "must have" toys that kids will be heartbroken to miss out on. Bluey, Barbie, Nintendo, NERF, Lol Surprise, Lego, Video Games, CocoMelon, Squishmallows... There are always new HOT toys and they are harder and harder to get as we get closer to the holidays.
If you want to make a BIG difference in a kids' life this season- please - consider making an earlier donation, so we can pick up some of the seasons hottest toys to bring BIG JOY this holiday season.
