UNION, NJ - Union will once again be hosting the Santa in Blue Toy Drive to benefit families in need this holiday season.
The yearly event has collected thousands of toys and is a time-honored tradition with township administration, the Township of Union Police Department and the community.
“This is one of our time-honored traditions here in Union,” said Mayor Michele Delisfort. “This collection helps support those who otherwise may go without.”
In the spirit of giving, organizers are asking for new, unwrapped toys for children newborn to 16 years of age.
Drop-off locations are:
- Union Police Department lobby, 981 Caldwell Avenue
- Union Fire headquarters, 1 Bond Drive
- Town Hall lobby, 1976 Morris Avenue
- All Township of Union school lobbies
Sorting of the toys will take place on Sunday, December 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Union High School. Volunteers are needed for the sorting and are encouraged to attend. Donations will still be accepted at the above locations after sorting until December 20. After December 20, items should be brought to Union Police Headquarters located at 981 Caldwell Ave.
