Harrison Fest Committee Volunteers have been working for weeks to prepare to tomorrow's (Sunday, December 20th) Holiday Dinner Celebration for families and children. Councilman Anselmo Millan, President of Harrison Fest, with the help of Mayor James Fife and a lot of volunteers are set to bring cheer and joy to children and their parents. The goal of the Holiday Dinner is to bring Joy to children and their parents during this very special time of year. Anxious parents bringing their children to meet Santa Claus, some with very limited resources, feel uncomfortable at first. As food is served and carols are sung, the parents realize that they are among an extended family. When Santa Claus arrives and each child gets an age appropriate gift and a free picture with Santa, Joy arrives in the faces of the children.
There are still opportunities to contribute to the dinner. If you are a local or far away restaurant and want to contribute food to the dinner, please call us at (973) 268-2706
A complete list of those who contributed to the Annual Harrison Fest Holiday Party will be published in the coming days.
