WOODLAND PARK, NJ - The Woodland Park Mayor and Council are once again sponsoring the annual Easter basket drive.

Materials to make Easter baskets for less fortunate children in the area are being collected at Woodland Park Borough Hall, 5 Brophy Lane, the Alfred Baumann Library, 7 Brophy Lane, and at the local schools, by April 15.

Volunteers create anywhere between 3,000 and 4,000 baskets a year, which are given to less fortunate children of all ages throughout North Jersey. The group has partnered with Five Below stores in the area to accept store purchased donations at the registers as well.
