The 'Night Light Bags' will include a blanket, stuffed animal, and glow stick. The City of Summit is encouraging residents to donate new, hard-cover books to be included in tote bags as well.

In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the Sanctuary at Central Presbyterian Church, located at 70 Maple Street.
