READINGTON TOWNSHIP ANNOUNCES
The HOLIDAY GIFT MATCH PROGRAM is underway!
Gifts must be returned by December 9th
The Holiday Gift match is a very special program run by the Readington Township Social Services Office. Community members can volunteer to adopt a local family, a child, a senior or an individual. You may do as much or as little as you wish. Past donors have been individuals, neighborhood groups, scout troops, work groups, clubs, churches and businesses. You may be surprised to see that many wishes are things that we take for granted…a warm coat, food, clothes or a new toy for a child. YOU can help make wishes come true and make someone’s holiday very special!! Call Christine Dey at (908) 534-0974 for details or to request a holiday match.
