During the holidays, many community members want to donate gifts for our families. Donna Michelsen runs our Adopt-a-Family program which closes out by December 1st. If you would like to give some practical items and/or some special treats after that date or at any time during the year, here are some specific items that are always appreciated and can be used by most, if not all, of our families once they move into housing:

  • Phone cards
  • Toy gift cards for kids’ birthday
  • Décor for a kids bedroom
  • Gift cards for teen clothing stores, sporting goods stores, bath and body stores
  • Movie gift cards
  • Mani/pedi
  • Activities – bowling, ice skating, etc
  • Bucket of cleaning supplies
  • Curtains
  • Bath mats and shower curtain
  • Air conditioners or fans
  • Lamps
  • Vacuum
  • Bean bag chairs for kids’ rooms

If you would like to donate any of these items, you may drop them off at the Family Promise Day Center, at 10 East Main Street, Flemington, NJ anytime between 7 am and 5 pm. Please call us at 908-782-2490 first to make sure someone is here to receive the donation and help you bring it upstairs.

Thank you for your generosity!
