This Is Rutherford
Toy and Clothing Drive
By Jennifer Ersalesi
This Saturday, November 14th, the First Presbyterian Church will hold one last collection of new toys and clothes for children ages six months to thirteen years old from 10 am until 2 pm. Contactless drop off will be offered at the First Presbyterian Church on East Passaic Avenue. All gifts should be unwrapped with tags still attached. See the flyer below for more detailed information.
New toys and clothes will be donated to Oasis, a non-profit group located in Paterson. Oasis has educational and social service programs to assist women and children. They also operate a soup kitchen and provide emergency food, clothing, and social support. Since Paterson is one of the poorest cities in the state and the pandemic has made life even harder for low-income families, this toy and clothing drive is just one way to help families who are struggling now and throughout this holiday season.
