Shongum Holiday Gift Certificates

December 14th, 2014 · Uncategorized

The deadline for purchasing Holiday Gift Certificates is fast approaching. Please consider purchasing Holiday Gift Certificates for some well deserving local charities over this holiday season. The certificate is given to a staff member and the money to charity. This year the staff has chosen the following three charities:
Randolph Families in Need
The Nicholas Meola Fund
Jersey Battered Women’s Service
If your child wishes to give to any staff member, we encourage you to consider the certificate option. In this way, the joy of gift giving is preserved and the money goes to a worthwhile cause. We hope this option makes the spirit of holiday giving even more meaningful. The deadline for submitting order forms is Thursday, December 18th. The letter and order form are attached here. Any questions, please contact Julie Hamilton at (973) 933-2122 or at jhamilton2333@gmail.comHoliday Gift Certificate Letter 2014,  Holiday Gift Certicate Order Form 1a 2014 v2
