FLORHAM PARK —  Following a long tradition, the Florham Park Rotary placed an “Angel Tree” in the Florham Park Post Office.

Working with the NJ Division of Child Protection and Permanency (NJ’s child protection and welfare agency) each ornament on the tree has a child’s wish for the holidays. In many cases, the gifts are the only gifts that participating children will receive over the holidays. Gift wishes displayed on the ornaments include winter clothes, blankets, pajamas, dolls, trucks, super hero toys and various games.

Residents are invited to select an ornament with a child’s wish and return their donations to the Post Office by December 20.

Rotary international is a non-political and non-sectarian organization open to all people regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or political preference. There are 1.2 million members across the globe in 35,000 clubs dedicated to bringing together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian services.

The Florham Park Rotary holds a breakfast meeting every Friday at 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. at the Florham Park Diner at 182 Ridgedale Avenue.
