NUTLEY, NJ - The community is invited to help local families in need by participating in the utley Treasure Chest. The annual effort is a joint project of the Township of Nutley, Department of Public Affairs and Nutlley Board of Education. 

Each year, the Public Affairs receives a list of families in need from the school district. Public Affairs then reaches out to the community to help. Those wishing to help will then be sent an e-mail with information pertaining a Nutley family. The identity of the families is never disclosed to those offering to participate. 

The families in the programs have from one to five children. It is asked that donors you purchase three to five gifts per child. The information provided is right from the children so donors will know their interests as well as clothing and shoe sizes. 

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

If you prefer you can donate a gift card in the amount of $25. These cards are used to purchase items for the children and sometimes added to a child’s gift list (as some prefer gift cards). Some children like to go to the movies so an AMC Theatre gift card may be an ideal gift.

What you decide to purchase for the children or donate a gift card is totally up to individuals as the donor.

Questions about the program can be directed to the Nutley Department of Public Affairs at (973) 284-4976
