Despite an improving economy, many of our Stafford Township friends and neighbors still struggle to make ends meet. To help make this a happy holiday season for all our residents, the Stafford Township PBA Local #297, in cooperation with Stafford Recreation, is conducting its annual HOLIDAY TOY and COAT DRIVE. Please join us in this effort by donating new, unwrapped toys, age-appropriate gifts, gift cards or certificates or WARM WINTER COATS of all sizes for boys and girls, newborn through age 18. Donations can be dropped off at the Bay Avenue Community Center, 775 East Bay Ave, weekdays during business hours or, anytime, at the Stafford Township Police Department, 260 East Bay Ave, Manahawkin. A list of gift collection boxes in area business locations can be found on Stafford Recreation’s Facebook page. For monetary donations, please make checks payable to Stafford Township PBA 297 Toy Drive.

For more information, please call Jennifer at 609-597-1000 x 8573 or Deb at 609-597-1000 x 8583. Your generous support is greatly appreciated.
