Caring Kids just “wrapped up” its 7th annual holiday gift drive in partnership with the New Jersey Regional Day School in Newark.  Thanks to the generosity of the Millburn Schools’ community, 192 special needs children will receive Christmas gifts.  

This was the organization’s most successful drive yet, with more than 1,000 gifts donated, among them 88 basketballs, 66 remote control cars, 49 vet sets, and 30 boom boxes.

103 children will receive winter coats, and they collected just over $3,700 in supermarket gift cards to provide food and necessities to the families, many of whom are dealing with significant financial hardships and food insecurity.

Members of the Millburn Community helped wrap the gifts at the Caring Kids annual holiday party on Saturday, December 16th.  The Holiday gift collection is chaired by Sharon Cohen and Kim Moore, who delivered the gifts to the school on Monday, December 18, in a truck, or perhaps modern-day sleigh…filled to the brim with gifts. Current Caring Kids Chairperson, Dorothy Kelly, followed with the remaining gifts in her own car.

Caring Kids is a district wide, parent-run organization, whose mission is to help children grow into compassionate, positive, and empowered members of society through character education programs in the schools, social activities, family enrichment talks/workshops, and community events.
