With only two weeks to go until our holiday distribution, the IFPO is halfway toward our goal of 1,000 toys. Thank you to those who have already contributed! 

We are hoping to offer each client-family 2 new toys to give as gifts for the holidays, but we still have a way to go.  

If you’d like to help make the holidays merry for our clients’ children, you can order through the  IFPO Amazon Gift Registry  and your purchase will automatically be shipped to our collection site. Please place all Amazon orders by December 12 th to ensure timely delivery.
 
If you prefer to shop in-store, our most needed items are arts & crafts kits, play-doh sets, basketballs and footballs. If you buy in-store, please drop-off your item(s) at one of our collection sites by December 17th:  
180 Garfield Place, Maplewood
38 Wildwood Drive, Short Hills
15 Cayuga Way, Short Hills
