Help Us Make the Holiday Season Brighter for Newark Families


It’s that time of year again! It’s time to start thinking about the Holiday Season and for Newark Community Solutions and our amazing partners that means preparing for our Third Annual Holiday Gift Drive and Wrap Party. But first we want to thank you. Last year we received overwhelming support from Newark Municipal employees as well as several local organizations. As a result of your generous donations, we provided gifts to 150 Newark kids!

This year we have partnered with Wynona's House, a Newark nonprofit dedicated to promoting justice and healing for child victims of violence and abuse. Donated gifts will be matched up with a Newark child's "wish list" and then wrapped by volunteers. All surplus donations of toys and clothing will be provided to the St. Antoninus R.C. Church, 337 S. Orange Avenue, Newark, NJ, for distribution to local families in need.

Individuals and departments can get involved in several ways including:
  • Gift donation
  • Donation of wrapping paper, tape, ribbons and bows
  • Volunteer to wrap and package gifts at the Wrap Part
  • Donation of snacks and drinks for volunteers

This year our “Wrap Party” will take place at 11:00am on Saturday, December 14th in Room B-29 of Newark City Hall. If you want to get involved, please send an email to brownk@ci.newark.nj.us and let us know what you can do. Together, we can help make a difference for Newark's families this holiday season.
