SOMSD Parenting Center Holiday Toy Drive

We all know how generous the South Orange Maplewood Community is, especially when it comes to making life easier for one of our own neighbors. Never is that spirit more evident than at the holidays when the South Orange Maplewood School District Parenting Center runs its annual Holiday Toy Drive.

Now in its 22nd year, the South Orange Maplewood School District Parenting Center Holiday Toy Drive provides holiday gifts for children of families in need in our school district.  Last year our toy drive benefited over 500 children in 150 families in our two communities.

Your tax-deductible contributions will be used  to purchase books and gifts for children from infancy through age 17;
no donations will be used to cover administrative costs. Unwrapped gifts will be provided to parents who, in turn,  will wrap the items themselves and give them to their children during the holidays.

On behalf of the South Orange Maplewood School District Parenting Center, we offer our heart-felt thanks for your generosity. Your gifts will provide the holiday joy this year that our district’s most vulnerable families might not otherwise have.  In the words of a recently laid off single parent of four school aged children,

"Let me say thank you for the gifts, and more thanks because the greatest thing you gave is all the joy you  brought my family.  Thank you for remembering us.”
