2016 HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS DRIVE
"Our staff was greeted with tears of joy, big smiles and warm hugs when they made the deliveries. The response, made possible by your donations, was very uplifting . . . "
- Angela B. Mackaronis, Director, Middlesex County Board of Social
Services (February 14, 2014).
the 10th consecutive year, the Middlesex County Bar Association and
the Middlesex County Bar Foundation have agreed to jointly undertake a
holiday project to assist individuals or families in Middlesex County
who are in genuine need. As in past years, we are asking that you make a financial donation to this project.
year, the Middlesex County Board of Social Services has identified six specific families that we will try to help over the holiday season.
These people are all managing with very little and their requests are
for the most basic of needs. Click here for their stories.
The amount of your contribution is not as important as your participation.
When considering whether to participate in this drive, remember that
charity is the first to feel the impact of difficult financial times and
that the brunt of this impact first hits these very people we are
trying now to help.
circulate this notice in your office and encourage participation.
Encourage your vendors to participate. Make this effort known to your
friends and family.
Financial donations should received at the bar association office by Friday, December 16th,
payable to the Middlesex County Bar Foundation and referencing the 2016
Hope For The Holidays Fund Drive, and can be either brought or sent to:
Jonathan Cowles, Executive Director
Middlesex County Bar Foundation
87 Bayard Street
New Brunswick, New Jersey 08901

hope that you will participate in this years campaign in the same
spirit that our bar membership and friends have given in the past. Their
generosity was and is an example to all of us.
With my thanks and warmest wishes for this holiday season and the coming year, I remain
Very truly yours,
