Tonight – Make Christmas Better for Ocean County Kids in Need
When you're busy making sure your kids have the best Christmas, it's easy to forget that there are others in our own community who aren't so lucky.
Tonight, you can help make Christmas a little better for kids in need. The Ocean County Police Department informed us that they're holding a stuff-a-cruiser event, from 5-8 pm at Waretown Plaza (Post Office Plaza). Check out what The Ocean County Police Department says about the event:
The Ocean Township Police Department in support of the Township Of Ocean Annual Toy Drive “Operation: Stocking Stuffer” will be hosting a drive through toy drive. The event is Covid friendly, and we ask the community to help us stuff a police car with gifts that will be donated to local families in need!
As someone who was always fortunate enough to wake up with gifts under my tree, it's heartbreaking to know that kids who are right here in Ocean County won't get the same experience. It is good to know that there are many people in our community setting up events like these, to help make the holiday special for all.
Next time you're out shopping (for instance, at the Ocean County Mall, or Target in Toms River) it's not a bad idea to stop by the toy aisle and see if there is anything small you can pop in your cart to save for a drive like this when it comes up. It could bring a huge smile to a child who needs it.
