In 2020 due to Covid-19, our need is the greatest it has ever been.
Whether you’re an individual, a company or a group, we hope you will join us in making holiday wishes come true. This year we think normalcy and joy is more important than ever for the children we serve. By supporting the Annual HFA Toy, Pajama & Book Drive, you will help fill wishes for many of Hudson County’s underprivileged children. For some, it may be the first time they have ever received a present. For all, it will be a time that makes them feel special and one that they remember.
One thing that has not changed- We need you!
We offer two ways to help:
1) If you’d like to contribute with a Tax Deductible monetary donation to Toy, Pajama & Book Drive (Paypal Link below).
100% of your donation will be used towards a tax-free purchase of a toy or pajamas.
2) Shop Local, Shop Early & Donate in Person:
