Letter: Midland Park Children's Love Fund Holds Annual Giving Trees
● By Rebecca K. Abma

Thanksgiving has passed, and our thoughts now turn to Christmas and all the preparations and excitement of the season. Unfortunately, for some of our Midland Park neighbors, this is a season of anxiety and stress, as they wonder how they will fulfill even the smallest Christmas wish for their children.
The Midland Park Children’s Love Fund, Inc, collects wishes from our families and displays them on our “giving trees”. This year the Children’s Love Fund has displayed The Giving Trees in the children’s room at the library, and at Starbucks. Please stop by and take a wish from one of the trees and make a local child’s Christmas special. You can purchase and wrap a special gift, place the tag from the tree on the wrapped gift, and bring the gift back to the library or Starbucks.
A Love Fund volunteer will bring your gift to the child’s family before Christmas morning. Your generosity will make a huge difference in how a child from a struggling Midland Park family remembers this Christmas.
If your routine doesn’t take you to one of our giving tree locations but you still feel the Spirit of Giving, you can send a donation of any amount to The Midland Park Children's Love Fund, P.O. Box 327, Midland Park, NJ 07432. Earmark your check with “giving tree” and a Love Fund Volunteer will purchase and wrap a gift for you!
There are even opportunities to “adopt” a Love Fund family this holiday season! If you have any questions about The Midland Park Children’s Love Fund, or to adopt a family this holiday season, please call Michelle Nejmeh at 201-670-7292 or Laurie Kamp at 201-670-1062.
Thank you for your continued kindness and generosity.
Very truly yours,
The Midland Park Children's Love Fund, Inc.
