Santa Comes Early to Newton

December 13, 2013 at 2:27 PM

NEWTON, NJ - Hundreds of local children and their families were treated to an early visit from Santa at Project Self-Sufficiency’s 25th annual Holiday party on Thursday, December 12th.  Participants enjoyed games, holiday crafts, a holiday sing-along, raffles, and dinner. 

Senior Girl Scouts from Troop #225 as well as students from Newton High School’s Interact Club were on hand to play games with the children and help the partygoers with craft projects.  Children posed for photos with a special visitor from the North Pole, playfully impersonated by photographer Michael McNamara.  Holiday music was provided by Anna David.  Project Self-Sufficiency is a local non-profit agency which specializes in services for low-income families in northwestern New Jersey.

“The annual holiday party at Project Self-Sufficiency is an exciting way to usher in the holidays, and our participants look forward to attending year after year,” said Claire Willetts, Program Coordinator at Project Self-Sufficiency.  “We are very grateful to all of the volunteers who help to make this a merry occasion for the children and their families.”
