Angel Tree Update
Thanks to your generosity, dozens of your gift bags and $700 of gift cards will bring a happy Christmas to struggling neighbors.  While Patch held their holiday event early, and could not distribute our gifts, families served by  IHN and St Joseph’s Social Services in Elizabeth appreciate the chance you’ve given to choose gifts for their children.
