PROJECT “LITTLE SOLDIERS” WISH STAR TOY DRIVE AT TOWN HALL

Since its inception, the Little Soldiers Program has provided gifts for the children of deployed soldiers with the State of New Jersey.  With the large numbers of New Jersey military personnel currently deployed overseas, a special gift might help bring a smile to the “Little Soldiers” who are left behind.  While gifts will never take the place of sharing the holiday season with a parent or guardian, it will let them know they are remembered.

The military children have made one wish, placed it on a star, and that star is now in Town Hall on a display board.  Please stop by to choose a wish to be granted and return your unwrapped gift with wish star attached to Town Hall by December 11, 2017.
