Holiday Toy Drive Brings Joy to Sussex County Children


Funds to purchase toys for needy Sussex County children during the holiday season are greatly appreciated.

The annual goal of the Season of Hope Holiday Toy Drive is to collect 20,000 new and unwrapped toys for distribution to children and teens. Advance registration is required to receive toys.

Partners of the initiative include the Family Success Center at Project Self-Sufficiency, Chatterbox Drive-In, First Hope Bank, Gravity DesignWorks, iHeartMedia, Inc., Intercar Mercedes Benz, the New Jersey Herald, Pass it Along, The Printing Center, Off Shore Marine, Selective Insurance Company of America, Service Electric Broadband Cable, Stocker Bus Company, Sussex County Chamber of Commerce, Sussex Honda, and the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots.

Toys must be new and unwrapped.

Items can be dropped off at Project Self-Sufficiency during the months of November and December, Monday - Thursday, 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., and Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

A limited number of additional drop-off sites are located throughout Sussex County and northern Warren County. Call 973-940-3500 for a location near you.

Donations of gift wrap, ribbons, gift bags and boxes, and stocking stuffers are also welcome.

For information about donating toys, or the funds to purchase toys, call 973-940-3500. Thank you to all of our donors and volunteers!

The families of Sussex and Northern Warren Counties thank you and wish you Happy Holidays!

Project Self-Sufficiency Board of Directors member The Honorable Lorraine Parker, J.A.D. (retired) and her husband, Tim Parker, are serving as co-chairpersons of the 2017 Season of Hope Toy Drive. "More than 2,000 children and teens received holiday gifts in 2016 from the Season of Hope Toy Shop. Those kids would not have had those gifts if the Sussex County community did not care. Again in 2017, we come together to ensure that every child has holiday gifts and that no child feels left out of the holiday celebration."
