Project Help a local charity devoted to helping veterans and their families and will be providing Christmas Gifts for the children of local military veterans.

This is the second annual Santa Shop that Project Help is sponsoring at the Sparta Middle School on Rt. 517 in Sparta on December 14, 2017. Toys are being collected by the West Milford American Legion and all are welcome to donate.

The Christmas shop is open to the parents to come and shop, at no cost, for all the gifts they need for their children. Project Help also hopes to have gift cards for food and gas for the families as well as the toys.

If you would like to contribute an unwrapped toy, new hats, gloves and scarves or gift cards, the deadline is Dec. 13. The Santa Shop set up time is 5 p.m. and the program start time is 6 p.m. There are at least 20 children to make happy on Christmas morning, boys and girls ages 4-17. Suggested teen items could be hats, gloves, hair jewelry etc. Contact 973-875-2068 or email for drop off instructions.

Sandy Mitchell, Executive Director of Project Help, will address the veterans who are enrolled in the Military Families Night Out program hosted by the Center for Prevention in Newton. Mitchell will talk to the veterans about the resources that Project Help can supply to them and their families, all of whom have fallen upon hard times, or have just not succeeded as they’d hoped.
