Haddon Township Toy & Food Drive

The Holiday season should be a time of magic and joy for children everywhere, but sadly, it is not.  Families in Haddon Township are struggling with budgets that cannot meet basic household needs, much less provide gifts for the holiday.

Mayor Randall Teague and Commissioner Jim Mulroy are once again sponsoring a town-wide toy and food drive for families in need.  Donations of unwrapped toys, non-perishable food items, gift certificates and monetary donations are being accepted at the Municipal building, Walgreens, Westmont Fire Co. #1, all Haddon Township schools and the Annex building through December 17th.

If you or your family would like to support Haddon Township’s Annual Toy and Food Drive this holiday season please feel free to contact Kate Burns at kburns@haddontwp.com.   Every contribution, no matter the size, will ensure that Township families will experience everything the holiday should bring—magic, joy, love and perhaps most of all, hope.

 

Winterfest Market

Holiday on Haddon

Friday, November 30th at 7:00 pm

Santa Claus is coming to town on Friday, December 7th for the annual “Holiday on Haddon” celebration.  The “Parade of Lights” sponsored by the Westmont Fire Company No.1 will begin at 7:00 pm and make its way down Haddon Ave.  to the municipal building.  Decorated fire trucks, bands, floats, holiday characters and, of course, Santa will all be parading their way to the Township tree.

The tree lighting ceremony will take place immediately following the parade where all of Santa’s helpers will be encouraged to magically light the tree.  Afterwards, families are invited for refreshments at the Westmont Fire Company No. 1 and children will get a chance to sit on Santa’s lap before he returns to the North Pole.  There is no rain date for the parade.  Refreshments and photos with Santa will still be held at the Westmont Fire house in case of inclement weather.

The Township will also be collecting unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items for the Annual Holiday Toy Drive that evening.

For more information on the parade, please contact; Kate Burns at kburns@haddontwp.com.
