CHRISTMAS TOY COLLECTION
Looking to make some room in your home before Santa arrives with new toys? Please consider donating new and gently used toys to the John Corr Family Resources Newark Christmas party. Each year, the Newark Vocational School is transformed into a winter wonderland for the most disadvantaged families of Newark. While children play and meet Santa, parents are allowed to “shop” for gifts to put under their Christmas trees. JCFR relies on donations to be sure there are enough gifts for everyone. Last year, 380 children and their families attended this special event. There will be a collection bin in the lobby from November 25th through December 6th for any toys that have outgrown your home. In addition, a “wish list” has been created to purchase new toys to round out the offerings. Items purchased through this link will be sent directly to those at Villa Walsh who are planning the event.
As always, thank your for your generosity and support of those who need our help.
If you have any questions, please contact Christine Dam (201)919-1464.
ATTENTION ALL PRE-SCHOOL PARENTS
NJ state law requires all pre-school children to receive the flu vaccine annually. If you have not already done so, please provide documentation from your doctor that your child has had the vaccine by December 1, 2019. Any child without proper documentation will not be allowed to return to school.
Please call or stop by the nurse’s office if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your cooperation.

CHRISTMAS COOKIES FOR THE TROOPS
Father Luke is once again looking to send dozens of Christmas cards and cookies to our troops. You can help in the following ways:
By providing homemade cookies, and lots of them! You do not need to bake from scratch; the refrigerator type of cookie dough is just fine. Please bring your cookies to the parish office on Thursday and Friday, December 5 and 6
By donating money to cover the cost of shipping. You can bring in your donation to help offset the cost of shipping to the parish office or mail it to Assumption Church c/o Fr. Luke, 91 Maple Ave, Morristown NJ 07960.
By writing a note of thanks and encouragement; or drawing a picture, or sending a Christmas card. Let’s show our troops how much they are loved! Bring your cards or letters to the parish office or mail them to Assumption Church c/o Fr. Luke, 91 Maple Ave, Morristown NJ 07960, by December 1.
