Collection boxes for donated goods are set up at several area businesses.

In Matawan, boxes are located at the police department headquarters at 150 Main St. and at Quick Chek, 60 Main St.

In Aberdeen, items can be deposited at Panther Press, 37 Lower Main St., ShopRite supermarket, Route 34, and at Stop & Shop, Route 34.

Residents who know of a family in need in the Matawan area and/or would like to donate to the toy and food drive should contact Matawan Borough Police Department Patrolman Andrew Marsala at 732-290-2020, ext 318.
Thanks to the Matawan Police Department for not only protecting and serving Matawan, but for caring so much for its residents.

We urge everyone to contribute to help those in need. Afterall, isn't that what Christmas is all about.
