Community groups are joining forces, for its seventh year, in Millburn this March for a children’s volunteering event to help youngsters in need.

‘Kids For Kids,’ organized by the Junior League of the Oranges and Short Hills, Inc. (JLOSH), brings together local groups and children for a morning of hands-on volunteering and fun at the George Bauer Community Center in Taylor Park, Millburn, on Saturday, March 30.

The activities children aged six to twelve years will be able to take part in include:
