Holiday Gift Drive 2019

Our holiday gift drive is taking place again this winter… during a time crunch! Traditionally, we wait until after Thanksgiving to start collecting new toys and clothing. Since Thanksgiving falls so late in November, we would only have 11 business days to get the word out and have people shop/return the gifts before our collection deadline of Dec 13th. This year we are going to start before Thanksgiving, to ensure that we give everyone enough time to participate in our gift drive.

Here you can find a list of toys/clothing that we are asking for, Bear Gift List, but I can tell you that any new toy or clothing item is greatly appreciated. If you have new items in your home that you cannot use, please consider donating them. I have young children and know that over the years they have received toys or clothing that just hasn’t matched up with the sizes/seasons or is a duplicate. I gladly compile these items throughout the year and donate them to our gift drive.

If any local businesses or organizations (Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, sports teams) are looking for a community service project, we would love to partner with you for our toy drive! Email me today
sgrande@cherishedcreations.com

We are currently partnered with some local schools, dance studios, companies, and the Berkeley Heights YMCA to act as gift collection centers. On Dec 16th, we will collect the gifts and deliver them to shelters in Newark, Elizabeth and Trenton, NJ. In turn, these shelters distribute the gifts to the families in their communities.

If you don’t live locally but would still like to be part of our gift drive, please consider ordering gifts and having them delivered to our offices: Cherished Creations/ Attn: Suzanne Grande/ 343 Snyder Ave./ Berkeley Heights, NJ 07922.

Thank you!

Thank you to all of our supporters for your donations! 100% of donations received go directly to our wish recipients and have brought such joy to so many children.  At the end of the year, we will reveal our exact number of wishes fulfilled throughout 2019, but for now, please enjoy this video of thanks.

Registration begins at 10:45, and we will kick off with a BBQ luncheon at 11:00. Hand-rolled cigars will be available for a $10 donation. At 12:30, we will have a shotgun start for our scramble tournament. A complimentary beverage cart will be making the rounds all day. Golfers will have an opportunity to compete for a hole in one, beat the pro, and play for a pot of gold.

A Cocktail Reception will immediately follow the round of golf and will go directly into the dinner reception. At the dinner reception, we have a very special guest speaker. During dessert, all winners will be announced for the Prize Raffle, golf contests, and silent auction winners. We hope you can join us!

Every penny of your donation goes directly to granting wish requests of seriously-ill kids up through the age of 21.
