On November 16th, more than 200 kids, parents, and Junior League of the Oranges and Short Hills (JLOSH) members participated in a Kids For Kids event. Together they were able to assemble 1,200 Bonus Bags that contained essential winter items and dental hygiene items to children in “Maplewood, Orange and South Orange through the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s weekend meal program.” In addition to these Bonus Bags, the volunteers and little helpers also put together more than 500 healthy snack bags that were distributed to homeless children served in after school programs.
