TLSJ 2014 Annual Children Christmas
Touching Lives of South Jersey (TLSJ) was delighted to host their 6th Annual Children Christmas Party registering 200 children in need. The party was scheduled for Saturday, December 13th 2014 at the Edward W. Dorn Community Center.
We were able to service over 150 less fortunate children and their families; they were treated to an evening of fun, food, presents. The stars of the show were Santa and Mrs. Claus who arrived from the North Pole to cheers and many happy faces.
Each child received an age appropriate wrapped gift, a stocking stuffed with toys and goodies, and team merchandise from the Philadelphia Phillies Organization. The children were also given a raffle ticket for a chance to win additional toys from our gift table.
An event of this size and magnitude could not happen without the support of our many sponsors and a host of volunteers. We were successful to receive support from many local businesses, organizations and individuals. Some of this year’s supporters were: Philadelphia Phillies, Wawa, Pepsico, Calvary Community Development Corporation, Gloucester County Minority Coalition, Peaceful Stitchers Quilters and many individual donators. Without these supporters, our outreach would not be possible.
