Giving Back: The Stable is Taking Donations

The Ridgewood Department of Parks and Recreation annually hosts holiday collections to assist those less fortunate.

Suggested gifts for our Stable holiday tree include: new mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, socks, slippers, thermal wear, pajamas, etc.; all to benefit the “Center for Hope and Safety” (formerly Shelter Our Sisters).

Also, the Saddle River Detachment #1211 Marine Corps League is doing their annual drive to make an amazing difference to children with Toys for Tots.  Donations should include: new, unwrapped gifts.

Food pantries always need stocking. Donations of food, personal and household items received will be forwarded to the pantry shelves of Social Service of Ridgewood and Vicinity.  Suggested donations include boxed cereal, pasta, rice, canned juices, vegetables, soup, fruit, canned fish and meats, tomato sauce, peanut butter, jelly, shampoos, toothpaste, soap, laundry detergent and paper products.

All donations will be accepted at the Stable, 259 North Maple Avenue, Ridgewood, through Wednesday, December 18th. The Stable hours are 8:30 to 4:30, Monday through Friday.  You may contact the Recreation Office at 201-670-5560 with questions.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
