  HOWELL – The holiday season is a meaningful time of the year where others can give back and help families who are less fortunate.

  This year, the Township of Howell is inviting all residents and local businesses to consider adopting a family in need within the community.

  During these tough times, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic hurting families financially, many residents are in need of one another’s generosity.

  The Township stated how their goal is to gather as many volunteers as they can and assign them each an “adopted” family in Howell. Volunteers will help families with children (ages range from toddlers to 17 years old) to give them a joyful holiday. Many local businesses, neighborhoods, residents and non-profit organizations and groups have come together to be involved in the benefit.

  The Township still needs more volunteers to help and support the “Adopt A Family” Holiday Give Away.

  You can help or contribute to the benefit by doing anything of the following:

  • You can help by calling the Township of Howell to sign up to sponsor a Howell family. (732) 938-4500 ext. 2102.
  • You can also help by purchasing gift certificates in any increment. (Walmart, Target, Five Below, Kohl’s, Applebee’s, or Visa Card)
  • Organize a neighborhood, office and/or store collection for families.
  • Support this event by informing your friends and family about the Give Away.

  All gifts must be unwrapped. Gifts can be dropped off at the Howell Township Municipal Building, 4567 Highway 9 North Howell, NJ, First Floor. You can drop off gifts on the following dates and times: December 3 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and December 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  Give Away will also be held at the Howell Township Municipal Building. Dates and times of the give away are as follows: December 10 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and December 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
