Winter Wishes provides over 400 New Brunswick preschool children with gifts for the holiday season that their families may not be able to provide. Each child’s wish is “adopted” by a member of the Rutgers community to create a personal holiday experience. The children will also be invited to a holiday event to remember with activities, games, and to receive their gifts.
To participate, follow the link above to adopt a wish using the online registration form by November 17. Once you complete the form you will be contacted with the information about your child via email. Once you have received this email, you must confirm your participation and acceptance within 48 hours. By registering, members of the community volunteer to purchase gifts for a child based on their top three wants and needs. This may include toys and games, but often the children will need basic essentials like clothing and winter gear. We ask that you spend around $25 per child. If you have any questions about adopting a child’s winter wish, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
