Make A Smile Foundation, Inc. Annual Holiday Party and Shopping Sprees

In December Make A Smile Foundation, Inc. will host multiple Holiday Party and Shopping Sprees:

  • Sunday, December 2, 2018 at the Target store in Milltown, NJ
  • Sunday, December 9, 2018 at theTarget store in Manalapan, NJ
  • Thursday, December 13, 2018 at the Phoenix Spectrum Target store in Phoenix, AZ

Up to 60 children in need from various school districts will be participating in these events, where groups of one or two children will be accompanied by a volunteer while they explore the Target store. Each child will be choosing up to $42 in toys and games. The funds for these toys and games and the gifts from Santa (see below) are being provided by funds raised by the Make A Smile Foundation, Inc., and numerous sponsors. Each child will then proceed to the cashier where the volunteers will pay for the items chosen and give the change to the child.

After the toys have been selected and paid for, the children and volunteers will gather together to sing carols. At that time, they will receive gifts from Santa which are purchased with funds from our sponsors and toys donated by the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program and Target. The toys are wrapped by volunteers.  Make A Smile will also provide a photographer and each child receives a photograph with Santa courtesy of Target. Target and Make A Smile will also receive photographs for their files.
