  • Christmas “Gift Shop” A Hit in Camden and Mount Laurel

    Our Northgate II development in Camden is home to some 150 boys and girls who endure the daily struggles associated with living in one of our nation’s most violent and impoverished cities.

We do the same thing at the Margaret Donnelly O’Connor Education Center, where the kids also get to enjoy a delicious “Breakfast with Santa.” These holiday donations offered our young residents a moment of welcome relief, good cheer, and the chance to smile with the delight that only a wonderful new toy can inspire.
