Princeton Human Services Thanks Donors to Annual Holiday Gift Drive

To the Editor:

Princeton Human Services thanks donors for their contributions to its 22nd Holiday Gift Drive. Princeton Human Services had its most successful Holiday Gift Drive this year thanks to the overwhelming number of donors who contributed. This year, the department distributed gifts to approximately 334 kids aged 12 and under. In addition to donating gifts for the children, donors donated a gift card to each family to help during these difficult times.

The department would like to thank Stone Hill Church, Dorothea’s House, Tenacre Foundation, Princeton Children’s Fund, PBA Local 130, Weichert Realtors, Church & Dwight, the Princeton Recreation Department, and the Woodland Drive neighborhood for their support and contributions to the Holiday Gift Drive as well as municipal employees, police officers, and the many Princeton residents who made individual donations and sponsored children in our drive. 

This is truly a community effort as everyone works together to ensure that our children in need have gifts to open for the holidays. Human Services has been coordinating this drive for many years and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of all of our donors and volunteers that help during gift distribution. Special thanks to our volunteers and staff that helped during gift delivery and distribution days.

We look forward to continuing the Holiday Gift Drive next year and providing this service to Princeton families. For more information on how to sign up or to make a donation for next year, please contact the Human Services Office at (609) 688-2055 or e-mail

We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season!
