TINTON FALLS – Individual gift bags have always been an essential part of each Holiday Express visit so the organization is looking for donations to fill them.
Items being sought are lotion, body wash, toothpaste, deodorants, crayons and coloring books, Beanie Babies and toys.
All items must be brand new, it doesn’t matter the size or brand. No amount is too small.
In many, if not most instances, the gift bag given to individuals by Holiday Express may be the only gift the recipient will receive during the holiday season. The bags get packed not only with loving care but with a substantial amount of practical necessities and items that are fun and/or useful.
Each gift bag contains several personal care items.
The Holiday Express mission is to deliver music, food, gifts, financial support and friendship to those with the greatest need for the gift of human kindness during the holiday season and throughout the year.
Holiday Express is located at 968 Shrewsbury Ave. Additional information is available by calling 732-544-8010 or visiting www.holidayexpress.org/how-you-can-help/donate.
